IMPORTANT RESEARCH: Employer Responses to Dementia in the Workplace

//, Health & Wellbeing, Mental Health, News/IMPORTANT RESEARCH: Employer Responses to Dementia in the Workplace

The Centre for Mental Health and Capacity Law at Edinburgh Napier University Business School has asked Hr NETWORK to kindly ask HR Departments across Scotland to complete their Dementia in the Workplace online survey, which will help them to understand how employers might support someone with dementia in the workplace, and whether they have policies and practices in place to do this. They are also interested to know if you think there is a need for further information to improve knowledge about dementia.

Introduction

You are invited to complete a survey for a study on employer responses to dementia in the workplace in Scotland. The study is being undertaken by a research team from Edinburgh Napier University, the University of the West of Scotland and Heriot Watt University. The research is funded by the Carnegie Trust for the Universities of Scotland.

Why is this survey being carried out?

They would like to understand the extent to which employers are aware of their legal duties and whether they have policies and practices in place to support employees with dementia.  They are also interested to know if you think there is a need for further information to improve knowledge about dementia.

How will the information be used?

The information provided by you in this survey will be used for research purposes only. It will not be used in a manner, which would allow identification of individual responses. No organisations or individuals will be named in the writing up of the survey findings.

What if I have additional questions?

If you have any questions please contact Mandy Cook on: m.cook@napier.ac.uk
