Dementia is a rapidly growing health issue for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Join Dr Mary Belfrage and Professor Dimity Pond as they give an overview of best practice principles in the detection and management of cognitive impairment and dementia, focusing on the cultural context of addressing the needs of older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, their families, carers and communities.
Your presenters will:
- assist you in understanding the ways in which brain health can be incorporated into primary health care
help you to learn about the MBS and PBS aspects of providing care for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples who are over the age of 50 years and live with cognitive impairment and dementia
