Researcher from Glasgow Caledonian University, Allison Reid, is recruiting for phase one of a study. See more information below.

Study Title: What facilitators or barriers exist to accessing podiatry for people with advanced dementia in care homes in Scotland: a mixed methods study.

We are conducting a study looking at the provision of Podiatry care for people  with advanced stage dementia across Scotland and need your help.

  • Do you have or have you ever had a family member or friend with advanced stage dementia?
  • Are you or were you involved in decision making for them?

Your family member does not need to be receiving footcare for you to be involved in this study.

The study would involve one video interview or focus group or telephone call with the researcher at a date/time that is convenient for you.  The interview should take no longer than one hour, and the researcher will ask you questions about how and why you make decisions for your family member with dementia.  The research is being conducted by Allison Scott, a Professional Doctorate student at Glasgow Caledonian University.

If you know anyone who meets the inclusion criteria and may be willing to participate, please pass the details of this study on to them.

If you would like more information or are interested in taking part in the study, then please contact Allison for more information: areid41@caledonian.ac.uk.
