"We will adjust education according to Community preferences," she said .".Each person filling out the survey was asked if they would attend the regional focus group in part 2 of the project."We will hold focus groups with interested people who have completed the survey to further understand which areas of community education they think are important," Dr.
Eccleston said .

"Once we have enough resources, we can set up focus groups in different communities."These findings will help educate educators, community members and peak institutions to teach people about dementia," she said .".Researchers are looking for at least 400 participants, and the program continues until March 2018.
Dr.
ekleston said that while they had not tried the recruitment methods used in Agfest before, the researchers hoped that many participants would volunteer to participate."We are interested in rural and regional Australia because we don't know much about their knowledge of dementia," said Dr. ecreston .".There are already many middle-end projects.
Dr ecreston said they are looking for more female participants."We especially hope to have more men and young people aged 18.35, but also women in rural areas .""It's hard for men to do surveys," she said .
