The number of people with dementia in Australia is growing rapidly. Inevitably this will increase the dementia patient-load for GPs. Additionally, as aged care services are stretched, the management of this group with chronic and complex care needs will fall to GPs and the extended primary care team.
General practitioners should be aware of the assessment and management of this disease and ways in which they can best enable their patients to access available services.
