Welcome to the Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration 

The Dementia Collaborative Research Centres (DCRC) were established in 2006 under the Government’s Dementia Initiative, funded by the Department of Health and Ageing after a competitive tender process. The three centres ('hubs') based at UNSW, ANU and QUT had many collaborative partners around Australia.  In 2011, administration of the DCRCs was transferred to the NHMRC and in 2016 respons ibility shifted to the newly established NHMRC National Institute for Dementia Research (NNIDR)

Under the NNIDR the 3 DCRC centres have been unified and renamed the Dementia Centre for Research Collaboration (DCRC) while retaining the 3 ‘hubs’. Alzheimer’s Australia is the auspicing body for the NNIDR and NHMRC has responsibility for outputs.

This new framework will serve to grow partnerships and strengthen ties with consumers and service providers, Dementia Training Australia and Dementia Support Australia in order to progress prevention, assessment, care and translation of knowledge into everyday practice, as well as building the next generation of dementia researchers.

Professor Wendy Moyle is the Director of the Research Centre for Clinical and Community Practice Innovation (RCCCPI), a research program in the Griffith Health Institute at Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia.

She also leads an evidence-based practice for older people research agenda in RCCCPI. Furthermore, she is a partner in the Dementia Collaborative Research Centre - Consumers and Carers, where the focus of her work is on the impact of social engagement and quality of life for people with dementia, families and carers.

Her focus on people with dementia and families can also be seen in her role as a partner in the QLD Dementia Training and Study Centre. Wendy's research has evolved around professional practice issues that focus on an understanding of 'care' in the areas of aged care and in particular mental health.

Wendy's PhD explored the experience of depression and her work on the therapeutic relationship has been highly cited. More recently her research focus has been on finding evidence for managing agitated behaviours in people with dementia using controlled trial designs and complementary and alternative medicine interventions.

Her most significant work has been the recent development of a capabilities model of dementia care. She has a well-established publication and research grant record and has achieved a number of awards in recognition of her teaching, supervision of higher degree students and research.
