Guidelines and support
ADNeT National Memory and Cognition Clinic Guidelines launched
In consultation with researchers, health professionals, people with dementia and their care partners, we developed the first National Service Guidelines for MC Clinics. These Guidelines are based on the overarching principles of person-centred care, equity, and respect and provide consensus-based, best-service recommendations for MC Clinics. They identify standards for the assessment and post-diagnostic support and care that should be ideally provided by MC Clinics.
The Guidelines are intended for all medical specialists, nurses, aged care workers, and allied health professionals with expertise in dementia, who are regularly involved in the assessment and care of people with cognitive decline and dementia as part of a multidisciplinary, specialist team. It is also applicable to clinic managers and administrators.
Are you an early to mid-career dementia researcher looking for grant opportunities, but not sure where to start? The ADNeT EMCR Accelerator group have put together a list of both dementia specific and general EMCR grant opportunities.
If you know of any others, please don’t hesitate to contact either Ayeisha Milligan Armstrong (email@example.com) or Dr Julien Bensalem (firstname.lastname@example.org). The list will be updated regularly with dates and status of application rounds. Good Luck!
The Australian Dementia Network has produced some guidance and support for health professionals during the COVID-19 pandemic. As you continue to care for patients, know we are here to support you.
