StepUp For Dementia Research





One of the biggest challenges for dementia researchers is finding the right people to participate. As such, CHeBA has been a StepUp for Dementia Research 'Organisation Champion' since November 2020. Organisation Champions play a vital role in supporting the development of this free online, postal and telephone service that connects people interested in dementia research with researchers conducting studies into dementia prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and cure. Anyone aged 18 and over – both with and without dementia – can register their interest. Based on volunteers’ characteristics such as age, location and diagnosis, they will be matched to any studies for which they may be eligible. StepUp for Dementia Research will improve recruitment into research studies, which has the potential to save millions of dollars and fast-track dementia research. Importantly, StepUp will give the public a voice and help them contribute to the future of dementia research. Ultimately, without research participants research cannot take place.
