Researchers and clinicians with working space at both the University of Victoria and Island Health are designing and running a collection of cognitive health disorder studies. Medical professionals who deliver dementia care have the opportunity for training and involvement in conducting the research. This allows the research to be conducted during care delivery, and expand clinicians’ research abilities.
Some highlights to date include:
- The development of a Dementia Guidance System and a mobile app to help in the diagnosis and tracking of cognitive health symptoms
- The opening of a Specialist Memory Clinic at the Seniors Outpatient Clinic at Royal Jubilee Hospital, the first for the region
