The Caring for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) People with Dementia eLearning course was developed by the Dementia Training Study Centres (South Australia) with Dementia Australia in 2016. The course was updated in 2018 following a review by the National LGBTI Health Alliance and Dementia Training Australia.

If your organisation achieves the formal Rainbow Tick Accreditation, it will be listed on a national register as an LGBTI-inclusive organisation. Dementia Training Australia is supported by funding from the Australian Government under the Dementia and Aged Care Services Fund.
