Abstract
Strategies on informed consent process and capacity monitoring for mild dementia research are at developing state. We reflected on our experience in the MinD project, and found that the successful collection of informed consent and full participation of PwD required the involvement of familiar healthcare professionals/care workers/staff at the recruitment and data collection stages and this needs to occur in an active support environment. Time is another important factor affecting the success of the study.
