Recognising and responding to dementia in Indigenous communities

 

Overview

This short course is run by the Centre for Remote Health.

Dementia is acknowledged as a significant issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in remote communities. Recent studies indicate a prevalence rate up to five times that in the non-Indigenous population. Primary health care and related workers from remote communities require a clear understanding of dementia, and the skills and strategies to assess and assist both the person with dementia and their family in managing their dementia. This workshop will give you the skills you need to provide quality dementia care and support.

The South Australia and Northern Territory Dementia Training Centre (SA and NT DSTC) is offering a limited number of scholarships to support attendance.
