Understanding the Dementia Care Workforce

The National Dementia Workforce Study, sponsored by the NIH National Institute on Aging, is conducting the first large, annual surveys of the dementia care workforce in the United States. Survey data and other linked data sources will create an unprecedented resource for researchers to answer critical questions about the workforce and its impact on care and outcomes for persons living with dementia.

Surveys in Key Practice Settings

Four national surveys are designed to help researchers understand the large and diverse dementia care workforce and how workforce factors impact care.

Valuable Data Resource

Surveys will be valuable as a standalone data, and they can also be combined with linked data, including beneficiary-level Medicare claims.

Taking the Survey

If you were invited to complete a survey, you can make an impact on how we understand the dementia care workforce in just 25 minutes.
