Brief synopsis:  

Dementia in our ageing population is increasing and the need for greater health access through digital interventions may be of substantial benefit to the community. In this study we aim to assess knowledge of dementia and health literacy among a sample of Australian health students as well as to identify any preferences for digital interventions and the likelihood of these future health professionals to recommend digital interventions to their future patients. 

The research student will assist with participant recruitment of an online survey. Other assistance and the potential for increasing research experience can be discussed once we meet.

Prerequisite skills: Attention to detail, excel, word. Conscientious, following through with commitments
