Consumer Consultation for the Australian Dementia Network Registry

The Australian Dementia Network Registry is consumer testing a baseline survey designed to capture people’s experience of care. The survey will ultimately help participating clinics identify areas for quality improvements.

Dementia Australia is facilitating this consultation through telephone interviews with Dementia Advocates representing a diverse range of socio-economic and cultural groups. The feedback has been positive, supporting the use of emoticons and easy to understand language in the survey. It is anticipated that the baseline patient survey will be implemented in the Registry in November 2020.
