Course Summary

The aim of the research centre is to develop research that seeks to understand dementia and ageing within a family and network context with attention to the complexities of social, psychological as well as cultural aspects. It includes research across a range of settings, including the community, acute hospital care and care home settings.

‘Ageing & Dementia at Bangor’/DSDC also benefits from being part of the distinctive range of multidisciplinary expertise within the Bangor Institute of Health and Medical Research (BIHMR) that will support students on the programme. As part of the research centre there is a vibrant group of postgraduate research projects examining a wide range of areas linked to ageing and dementia, ranging from developing compassionate dementia care in healthcare practice, to exploring how best to improve discharge from hospital into care homes.

The PhD (Ageing and Dementia) provides an excellent research-based training with exposure to a dynamic multidisciplinary environment at ‘Ageing & Dementia at Bangor’/DSDC and the Bangor Institute of Health and Medical Research (BIHMR). This provides a sound platform for a future career in the area of health and social care research. It also presents an opportunity to explore a contemporary area of health or social care related to ageing and/or dementia that has relevance to organisational contexts.
