Senior Research Fellow
John is a senior research fellow within the NIHR CLAHRC Wessex, Ageing and Dementia Theme, based at University Hospital Southampton. He is involved in research using mixed methods to investigate the impact of young onset dementia (YoD) for patients, caregivers, and healthcare service resources. This research focuses on understanding experiences of YoD routine clinical care and service provision; exploring multi-dimensional measurement issues in YoD research - with a particular interest in the utility of quality of life measures within the context of other psychosocial and clinical variables; and developing approaches to longitudinally monitoring patient and caregiver YoD trajectories. A significant aim of this research will be to introduce into routine clinical practice improved methods for assessing and monitoring patients and caregivers and the ability to identify more accurately those at risk of poorer outcomes.
