Improving outcomes for a timely diagnosis and management of dementia in General Practice

Dr Allan Shell, Dementia Collaborative Research Centre, with Alzheimer's Australia NSW

This project has developed and is now delivering full-day accredited dementia training workshops to GPs in every state and territory of Australia (13 sessions in total).

In addition, it is partnering with the DTSCs to develop online GP professional development modules, and is working with a medical software company to introduce dementia ‘prompts’ into widely-used GP desktop software.

The project is well underway and will wrap up towards the end of 2013.
