Join Dementia Research (JDR), a service which allows people to register their interest in participating in dementia research and be matched to suitable studies, has released a toolkit for health professionals to engage staff and encourage patients to join up. You can access it here: http://nhs.joindementiaresearch.nihr.ac.uk/
The toolkit consists of four sections:
* Integrating research with care
* Establishing a research culture
* Building research partnerships
* Working collaboratively to raise awareness.
As well as the toolkit, there is a range of downloadable and printable posters and leaflets on the website, and members of the JDR team are also available to give talks to staff; contact them to register your interest.
