About us What we do Our collaborations NARI’s work has a regional, national and international focus. Our research staff engage and work in collaboration with a number of partners including: StepUp for Dementia Research The University of Melbourne Deakin University The Royal Melbourne Hospital / Melbourne Health Council on the Ageing (COTA) University of NSW University of Tasmania Beyond Blue Benetas Dementia Australia. This collaborative model allows us greater access to resources and expertise to achieve better and more integrated health outcomes. International collaborations Some examples of international collaborations include: Moving Pictures India Leveraging India’s growing digital presence, researchers and clinicians from NARI, Curtin University, India’s National Institute of Mental Health and Neuro-Sciences (NIMHANS) and University College London develop films and animations documenting best-practice ways to care for people with dementia at home. This collaboration will improve the lives of millions of Indians with dementia and their carers. Incontinence care NARI is collaborating with research partners in Norway, Canada, Great Britain, USA, Sweden and Finland on several projects addressing continence care. These include interventions for stroke survivors with urinary incontinence, improving the quality of continence care for frail older adults, translating incontinence evidence into practice in acute care, and managing incontinence for people with a life-limiting illness and for people with dementia. Physical activity and falls NARI is part of a joint European grant application on physical activity in older people submitted by a consortium led by the University of Munster. NARI is also working with the University of Bournemouth and the University of NSW to develop a new framework for understanding fall-related psychological concerns. COVID-19 social study NARI has partnered with University College London to replicate and extend its longitudinal social study on the wellbeing effects of COVID-19 across time - both during the pandemic and in the recovery phases.
