Optimising medicine use in people living with dementia

What are the unanswered questions in the field of quality use of medicines in people living with dementia?

This important project aims to identify the top 10 unanswered quality use of medicines (QUM) questions for people with dementia. These questions will be generated and prioritised by Australians living with dementia, carers, and health care providers (clinicians).

Volunteering in the study will involve filling in an anonymous questionnaire. It will take about 10 minutes. The ethical aspects of this research project have been approved by the Human Research Ethics Committee (HREC) of the University of South Australia (HREC #202847).

The project is conducted by researchers from the University of South Australia, in collaboration with researchers from the University of Sydney, Monash University and University of New South Wales; in partnership, with the NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research (NNIDR), and the James Lind Alliance.
