The need to build a strong evidence base to support the delivery of high quality health and social care for people living with a dementia is widely recognised.  Scaling up and skilling up the research workforce is an important part of the step-change needed.  In this seminar, Ruth and Jackie discuss their experiences of supporting a cohort of dementia care researchers through and beyond doctoral training, sharing the resulting research and drawing out the lessons learned for building conceptual, methodological and practical capacity in the workforce.
