Multi-Species Dementia Strategic Development Group

Supported by a Research Network Grant from the Royal Society of Edinburgh, the Strategic Development Group [SDG] is a core group of members who provide strategic direction to the network.

During 2022-2024, the SDG will focus on two primary development goals:

  • Developing methodological frameworks for researching the lived experiences of dementia across species
  • Designing theoretically rich, practice-focused interventions to facilitate ‘inter-species wellbeing’ at key points during the dementia journey (e.g. diagnosis; care transitions; end of life)
