Dementia

Intervention

A theory-based survey of mental health teams will identify factors that are (a) modifiable and (b) the best predictors of behavioural intention. As there will be a range of these factors with these characteristics, we will select from them those factors which, in addition, can be modified by an intervention that is feasible. Then we shall select the three most promising interventions and simulate delivering them within a trial and examine their effects. There will be a fourth control (no intervention) arm.
