Rural and remote Australia

Providing accessible dementia education and training across Australia

Dementia Training Australia (DTA) delivers high-quality dementia courses, resources and services to all parts of Australia, and is committed to rural and remote Australia.

DTA is funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Health to provide training to health and aged care staff on care of people living with dementia.

Our online dementia courses, workshops and resources are accessed by a variety of people each year, Australia-wide.

Environments consultancy

Our award-winning Environments Consultancy has a team of specialists based in 5 Australian states, who are are available and prioritise visits to rural and remote locations across Australia.

We can discuss how to use your environment more effectively, help you plan a new facility or refurbish your existing one.

This service may help your organisation meet the Aged Care Quality Standards: Standard 1, Standard 5

This face-to-face investigation was part of a project that extended to the most remote services in Australia

These services have been identified from Health Department records, and we contacted them with an invitation to complete a training needs analysis questionnaire, telling us about their special circumstances and needs.

In exchange for this information, the remote services were provided with a subscription to the bi-monthly publication Australian Journal of Dementia Care (AJDC) which is accompanied with a ‘Journal Club’ booklet, designed to guide a discussion of four AJDC articles. The idea being that the AJDC publication and booklet were used to support fortnightly meetings at which the staff can discuss one of the recent developments in the care of people with dementia described in the current issue of the AJDC.
