Education and knowledge translation

The Murray Alzheimer Research and Education Program (MAREP) is involved in a number of on-going and new initiatives that have made significant advances in translating research into practical tools to ensure research gets to those who can use it the most.

These initiatives consist of workshops and training (in-person and online), such as our LIVING the Dementia Journey training program, designed for staff working in residential care environments such as long-term care homes, and train-the-trainer programs for educators.

MAREP has also developed a significant number of products and resources for a wide variety of audiences, such as persons living with dementia, family care partners, and professionals working in the dementia field. Our By Us For Us© Guides are available online or for order in print form. Other products available for order include DVDs and print documents. The Innovations Newsletter can be found online or through signing up for the email list. The Dementia Weekly News service is also available online or through signing up for the email list. In addition, we have compiled a list of helpful dementia-related links and contact information for your convenience. These resources have been created in a variety of mediums including websites, DVDs, listserv and RSS feeds, print documents, and accessible Portable Document Files (PDF).
