IRNDP Frontline Healthcare dementia survey


The International Research Network on Dementia Prevention (IRNDP) is an Australian led initiative designed to further research on dementia prevention and dementia risk reduction.

The IRNDP would like to develop information and support for dementia risk reduction in primary healthcare settings.

To do this, they need to know:
  • What GPs and practice nurses already know about dementia risk reduction and whether you feel that further knowledge is required
  • Where the barriers might be for dementia risk reduction in primary healthcare
You can help by completing a short online survey, accessed by clicking here.

The survey is anonymous but there is an opportunity to provide contact details if you wish to receive updates.
