Use of musical activities for people living with dementia

Dear colleagues and music therapists,

I am a PhD student at Anglia Ruskin University and am looking for qualified music therapists with experience working as a music therapist with people living with dementia to participate in a national survey to help identify the thinking and planning process of music therapists.

The survey titled ‘Use of musical activities for people living with dementia’ will take about 10 mins to complete and will involve some reflection on the musical activities you use within sessions considering various clinical aims.

Please see the Participant Information Sheet for more information about the survey

If you have any questions or comments, please contact sc1568@pgr.aru.ac.uk

Best wishes,

Do you work with people living with dementia? If so, would you like to take part in a research study to help improve our understanding of how music therapists experience and approach working with people living with dementia?

I am a PhD student at the University of Edinburgh conducting research into music making with people living with dementia, focussing on the perspective of music therapists. I would love to speak with you about your experiences and what you feel are the most important aspects of your work. If you would like to take part or find out more, please contact me on lucy.forde@ed.ac.uk or visit tinyurl.com/lucyforde

I am also attaching my e-flyer for the project if you felt this was appropriate to include.

I hope this looks ok to you. Please let me know if you would like me to make any changes.

Best Wishes,

Lucy (Lucy.Forde@ed.ac.uk)
