Organisations can support the campaign by following the link below.
The Sydney North Health Network supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment campaign and is committed to increasing efficiency of medical services and coordination of patients with dementia and delirium in primary health settings to ensure they receive the right care, in the right place at the right time.
Our commitment at Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network is to healthy people and healthy communities, and the Caring for Cognitive Impairment campaign is a practical demonstration of our support towards improving the health outcomes of people experiencing cognitive impairment.
Dementia Training Australia supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment campaign to promote best practice care for people with delirium and dementia in acute care.
The Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign recognises the need for a person-centred approach to care, which looks at the person as a whole and not just the symptom they are presenting with in hospital. People with dementia are at a high risk of delirium. 30%-40% of delirium cases can be prevented. Alzheimer’s Australia supports the Caring for Cognitive Impairment Campaign because we can and must improve care outcomes for people living with dementia who go into hospital.
