Current Research

With her research, Harleen aims to develop an interactive touch screen tablet version of Cognitive Stimulation Therapy (CST) which can be used for people with dementia and their carers in the United Kingdom. This will then be adapted for users in Spain and the Netherlands, according to the cultural contexts of these countries. Finally, the potential benefits of the developed and translated touch screen tablet version will be evaluated. CST is a brief, psychological treatment for people with mild to moderate dementia which has been shown to improve cognition and quality of life. Harleen's research is part of the INDUCT project (the Interdisciplinary Network for Dementia Using Current Technology - www.dementiainduct.eu)
