Fracture in the Elderly Multidisciplinary Rehabilitation Incorporating Capacity Loss due to Dementia
Falling and breaking your hip is a major life event. Many people struggle to get back to normal afterwards. This is particularly difficult for people with dementia, and we want to improve how rehabilitation is delivered to this group. We have developed a workbook and goal-setting diary to enhance rehabilitation. We now want to adapt these for use by people with dementia and their carers. We will then test these in a research study in preparation for a large clinical trial.

Designing and managing
The chief investigator, study manager and other members of the research team will support you in your role. They will familiarise you with the project when you start and will be available to discuss the project by telephone or e-mail. The trials unit also has a patient and public involvement co-ordinator (Heather Bagley), who is available, as required, to support you in this role.
You will be offered payment of £25 for each meeting lasting one hour. The same hourly rate will be paid for time spent preparing for meetings, answering e-mails, commenting on reports and materials between meetings, and supporting the patient panels.
The research proposal will include a request for funds for your time, travel expenses and also to pay for a professional carer for your relative or friend with dementia whilst you are attending meetings.
