Alzheimer's Society Doctoral Training Centre

 
  

 

The Alzheimer's Society Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs) consist of PhD students and clinical fellows working on a specific themed area of dementia research. Each DTC provides support and training to students to develop them into the next generation of dementia research leaders. 

TAnDem is a partnership between The University of Nottingham and The University of Worcester and focuses on the study of ‘The Arts and Dementia’. 

Programme overview


TAnDem builds scientific knowledge and evidence about the impact of engagement with creative activities on people with all stages of dementia. Students will work closely with people with dementia, carers and artists to look at the effect that theatre, film, puppetry, singing, painting and gallery visits have on individual patients.

The evidence will be used to find ways to measure outcomes that are meaningful for people with dementia, and also evaluate a programme of arts experiences that is being rolled out across 16 care homes in Nottingham.

Applications for fully funded studentships are now closed. However, the team is eager to discuss new proposals and alternative funding routes with any applicants who have suitable qualifications in the arts or social sciences, and who are interested in doctoral or post-doctoral opportunities.

Please contact Justine.Schneider@nottingham.ac.uk for more details.
