Abstract: This article describes the process of running a workshop with carers of people with dementia from the Alzheimer’s Society Research Network. The workshop brought together carers, health professionals and researchers with the aim of understanding the issues that carers face in managing medication related problems. The workshop identified the key issues for carers that were then used to inform the development of a future research proposal. The carers’ perspectives ensured that the research would address carers’ priorities and focus on the areas of most relevance.
