Project Description

Project Aim:

To create online resources outlining dementia risk reduction activities for dissemination and knowledge transfer to the wider community.

Method:

Analyses of relevant literature were conducted to identify dementia and cognitive decline risk reduction activities appropriate for promotion to the community, with a particular focus on research related to physical activity and vascular risk factors in dementia risk reduction in older adults. Following the literature analysis, text appropriate for two evidence briefs was drafted, and reviewed by the study investigators.

The investigators for this study included experts in the field of dementia risk reduction, as well as early career researchers as part of capacity building and the collaboration between the University of Melbourne and the Australian National University.

Once the text for each brief was finalised by the research team, text and presentation of the briefs were revised and formatted for public consumption. Following this, the briefs were published online for public access.
