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.
