About the Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) Team, University of Saskatchewan

The Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) is led by Dr. Debra Morgan, Professor and Chair of Rural Health Delivery at the University of Saskatchewan (U of S). For over 20 years, our team has conducted research and collaborated with community partners to improve care for people living with dementia in rural and remote Saskatchewan. Since 2004, our Rural and Remote Memory Clinic at the U of S has served as a one-stop specialist clinic focused on diagnosing and managing atypical and complex cases of suspected dementia. More recently we have established 1-day RaDAR memory clinics in southeast Saskatchewan across several communities. The RaDAR memory clinics were developed through partnerships with rural primary health care teams. Led by nurse practitioners and family physicians, the clinics use a team-based approach to dementia assessment and management to provide effective care and coordinated services to families close to home. Our team continues to establish 1-day memory clinics in other communities across rural Saskatchewan.
