Grant for VALID (Valuing Active Life in Dementia) project led by Professor Martin Orrell
INTERDEM Is pleased to announce that a research team led by Professor Martin Orrell of University College London and North East London NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded a £2 million Programme Grant by the UK National Institute for Health Research to evaluate a Community Occupational Therapy intervention for people with dementia (COTID) and their carers.
The 5 year programme known as VALID (Valuing Active Life in Dementia) starts in January 2012 and will build on work by Myrra Vernooij-Dassen and Maud Graff who developed COTID in The Netherlands. INTERDEM members in the research collaboration include Martin Orrell, Myrra Vernooij-Dassen, Esme Moniz-Cook, Maud Graff and Gail Mountain. COTID could potentially have major benefits for people with dementia and their carers helping them to cope better, reduce care home admissions, and may lead to major improvements in services.
