Summary This project focused on the development and evaluation of an intervention targeting BPSD in people with young onset dementia
People with Young Onset Dementia (YOD) often display a range of behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) which cause a great deal of distress and burden. This project focuses on the development and evaluation of a cognitive-training intervention targeting impaired cognitive, meta-cognitive and affective processes thought to underlie BPSD in this heterogeneous population. The honours or masters-level student will work closely with a PhD student who is driving this area of research, and will be given an opportunity to make an independent contribution to this research program. Interest and experience with the use of emerging intervention technologies, old age and dementia, and clinical trial methodology are preferred.
