Any nurse or other health and medical professional who has contact with patients who have a diagnosis of dementia are invited to complete an online survey to help explore the psychological variables that support effective patient care.


This research aims to identify how health and medical professionals’ attitudes and coping strategies support effective patient care to help inform the use of person-centered care with patients and improve both the wellbeing of health care providers and their patients.

The study is being led by PhD candidate and practicing psychologist Ellen McKenzie, based at the University of Canberra. The online survey asks participants to respond to questions related to their attitudes, coping strategies, and general wellbeing when caring for patients who have a diagnosis of dementia.

Participants can complete the 20 minute online survey by clicking the link below: http://canberrahealth.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_8eTn48oQ1L8Efk1

The survey closes the 31st of December. Participants who complete the survey can choose to enter a prize draw for your chance to win 1 of 4 $100 Westfield gift voucher.
