Communication of Dementia Diagnoses: Patient and Family Experiences and Developing Best Practices
Share your experiences with receiving a diagnosis of dementia.
We want to learn about the experience that individuals with memory and thinking problems and their care partners had when receiving a dementia diagnosis.
This information will help healthcare providers know how to better give this diagnosis.
This study will be completed remotely. No in-person visits required.
