We would like to hear from you if you have a diagnosis of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
We are a team of people from across the University of Oxford, interested in helping the NHS make the most of social prescribing. Social prescribing is an NHS service that helps people improve their health and wellbeing by referring them to relevant community or voluntary organisations. These organisations might provide social groups, leisure activities or practical information.
What we plan to do:
We aim to design research to clarify how social prescribing might be most helpful for people diagnosed with MCI. We are looking for volunteers with MCI to help us design that research.
What you will be asked to do:
You will be invited to a small workshop, in person or online, depending on your preferences and on government guidance at the time. You will be asked to share your experiences of life after an MCI diagnosis and consider what additional support might be valued. You need no prior knowledge to get involved. Afterwards you will be kept informed about the progress of the research.
You will receive £30 for your time and reasonable travel expenses
We are asking for people to volunteer now for a 2-hour workshop on 14 or 15 September 2021
