New Staff Member with Bradford Dementia Group
Dr Danielle Jones has joined the team as a Lecturer in Dementia Studies.
Danielle will be delivering modules on the BSc and MSc Dementia Studies programs, as well as contributing to the division’s research portfolio.
She has a background in Sociology and Social Research methods, predominantly using Conversation Analysis as a methodology to examine the implications dementia has for family communication and relationships.
Danielle is also involved in a clinical research study into dementia, working with collaborators from the department of Neurology at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital in Sheffield and researchers at Loughborough University. They are investigating how interactional features of patient’s presenting concerns during their first memory assessment in a memory clinic can be used to differentiate between people who receive a diagnosis of dementia and those with other functional complaints.
