Mission

Memory clinics are specialised centres for the assessment of persons with cognitive disorders, including dementia. At present, there are no standards for how to conduct diagnostic procedures, interventions, or research, or for the organisation and structure of memory clinics, and these vary widely.

The ADNeT – Memory Clinics initiative aims to bring memory clinic clinicians together in a collaborative network and to provide a framework for the operation of memory clinics. This will help to harmonise diagnostic and post-diagnostic support pathways and to ensure that all Australians have access to high-quality dementia assessments, no matter where they are located.

Our Strategies

  • Developing National Memory Clinics Service Guidelines in consultation with health professionals and people with lived experience of dementia
  • Publishing a National Map of cognitive decline assessment services across Australia
  • Establishing a collaborative Memory Clinics Network
  • Providing professional development and training opportunities by scoping training needs across Australia and organising webinars, seminars, and peer support programs
  • Developing resources that support clinicians in their everyday practice,
    such as the Automated Neuropsychology Norming Tool and Automated Risk-Reduction Report
  • Liaising with primary health care providers and policy makers to achieve greater harmonisation of diagnostic pathways and develop sustainable post-diagnostic support models
