Improving quality of care for people with dementia in the acute care setting (eQC)

Measuring the change in access to information as a result of ehealth admission assessments and how that impacts the care for people with cognitive impairment

This five year project led by Dr Melinda Martin-Khan is funded by the NHMRC Boosting Dementia Grant Scheme. The project commenced in 2018 and has been extended as a result of COVID-19. A Patient and Carer Advisory Board has been established (Chaired by Jane Thompson) to work with the grant investigators to implement and interpret the outcomes of the study.
