Connecting Us Together sign
At a meeting of the work programme leads in Manchester in July 2014 we adopted the following team values which we will implement throughout the study:

  • To accommodate and respond to the diversity of vision and values of people living with dementia and their care partners
  • To be a supportive, informed and collegic research team/network committed to mutual respect and development
  • To embrace creativity, innovation and shared stories
  • To empower the experience of people living with dementia, their care partners and neighbourhood networks
  • To always act within the formally agreed ethical frameworks and boundaries for research work and practice as well as paying attention to the informal, unanticipated and situational ethical issues that might arise in the course of our work
