Important outcomes from hospital admission

The University of Stirling is leading on a National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) funded project Understanding the outcomes of people with cognitive impairment and/or dementia admitted to the general hospital.

As part of this research, we use a survey to explore the outcomes that are important to people with dementia or confusion who have experienced a hospital admission.


In order to take part in this research you should be:

1.    A person who has experienced dementia or confusion, AND been admitted to hospital within the past two years. 

2.    OR someone who provides support to a person who has/is experiencing dementia or confusion AND has had an admission to hospital within the past two years.

NB. The hospital admission must have occurred whilst the person was living with dementia or confusion as it is the experience of being in hospital whilst living with one of these conditions that we are most interested in.

You are under no obligation to take part in, or complete, this research.  If there are any questions that you find too hard to answer or do not want to answer then please skip past them and continue with the rest of the survey. 


Survey Results

The results of this survey will be written up as part of our final report, they will also be published in a scientific journal and go on to guide future research aimed at improving the lives of people who are affected.
