The latest Join Dementia Research figures are in and it’s great news, as more than 30,000 volunteers have now registered with the service. To date, Join Dementia Research has enabled researchers to contact more than 7,500 participants, and 165 studies have used the service as a way to find suitable volunteers.
The service aims to accelerate progress against dementia by speeding up the time it takes for researchers find suitable volunteers for their studies. Only with enough willing volunteers can vital dementia research take place.
This news was a great way to start World Alzheimer's Month which the NIHR is marking with a spotlight campaign to raise awareness of the importance of research into this area and to get more people involved. With new information being added throughout the month, do keep checking back on the the World Alzheimer's Month campaign page or follow the campaign on facebook or twitter to keep up to date.
