GP Webinar Series: Early Diagnosis of Dementia....Why Bother?

Dementia puts enormous strains on people living with declining cognitive function, their families, carers and their GPs. There’s a degree of scepticism about the value of early diagnosis given there are no effective medications; but in fact making the diagnosis as early as possible has enormous value and there are interventions, management options, pathways and sources of support which make a difference.

Join us as we open up this very important conversation, with world authority on dementia, Professor Henry Brodaty, Dementia Australia’s Kaele Stokes, two GPs with a strong interest in the disease, metro based Dr Steph Daly and leading rural GP Dr Ewen McPhee. The panel will also be joined by a person living with dementia, sharing their invaluable real-life insight of the importance of diagnosis, management and support.

This webinar is totally focussed on primary care and will offer valuable insights and an opportunity for interaction and discussion. Don’t miss it. Register Now May 3, 2022 07:00 PM (AEST).
