The iACT4CARERS project aims to evaluate the clinical and cost effectiveness of internet-delivered Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for family carers of people with dementia in a full-scale randomised controlled trial. The trial will be delivered across 20 NHS services across England with support from the Norwich Clinical Trials Unit.

You will be involved in collecting data and monitoring research progress, ensuring the achievement of research objectives. You will also contribute to the data analysis and the research project’s dissemination. In addition, the iACT4CARERS project emphasises reaching out to a wider group of family carers including families from ethnic minority groups and you will have the opportunity to work with various patient and public representatives.
