An exploration of the UK unpaid carer's world

 Notes for use by this author

Note 1 within Notes for the two pages here  applies to the use of Meeting Centres    as in 3, 5, & 7 above.


  1. Any use of Meeting Centre(s)  is recommended to read Dementia Meeting Centre(s)  for the simple reason that we are selling the latter and it should be tied in to use of DMC(s).  Meeting Centre(s) could be Scout, Guide, Council or whatever.  

  2. Readers who are involved in any of the neurodegenerative diseases arising from the pages listed here are likely to ask if DMCs are available to them. Text please.

For the process analysis quantitative and qualitative research methods will be used. Based on a theoretical model that was developed (Meiland et al., 2004, 2005) to trace facilitating and impeding factors in the implementation of the MCSP in the Netherlands, a questionnaire will be composed to inventory facilitators and barriers of successful implementation of the MCSP in the participating countries on a micro (primary process), meso (organization) and macro level (laws and regulations, funding). source
