    Research Abstract

    Early diagnosis of dementia is a National Dementia Strategy priority. It can improve outcomes for people with dementia and carers by enabling treatment, support and the opportunity to plan for the future. People from minority ethnic groups access dementia services later than the White UK population and previous research has shown this is likely to be due to cultural differences. I propose carrying out further qualitative research to explore what kind of intervention South Asian community members would find helpful in encouraging earlier help-seeking for dementia. I would then develop and test the intervention in a pilot randomised controlled trial
