Demystifying Dementia

Event Type: Guest Lecture, Webinar

Dementia is a common presentation in general practice. It is the leading cause of death in women in Australia and the second leading cause of death overall.

This webinar has been designed to assist GP's and nurses in their interactions with people with dementia and their family/carers. It will include an interactive discussion with panelists outlining frameworks for making it easier to assess people presenting with dementia.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage with the panel.

  • Outline the difficulty in diagnosing and managing dementia despite it being a common cause of death.
