This anonymous questionnaire-based research study from DCU School of Nursing and Human Sciences is exploring the type of memory mistakes people make in normal everyday life, how often these mistakes occur, and the possible relationship between memory errors and factors such as age, gender, education level, mood and fatigue.
If we know more about how often healthy people forget, the types of things they forget, and the factors that influence forgetting, GPs and other health professionals may be better able to judge the potential seriousness of an individual’s complaints and help people to improve and protect their memory.
If you are aged 50 or above, and you do not have a diagnosis of dementia, Parkinson’s Disease or a neurological condition that impairs cognition, a significant psychiatric or learning disability, or severe hearing or visual impairment, please complete this anonymous questionnaire (link below) looking at everyday memory lapses. The questionnaire takes approx 20 minutes to complete.
Please forward this email to anyone else you know who is aged 50 or above, resident in Ireland, and possibly interested in completing the survey.
