Evaluation of the National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015 - 2019

Closed 6 Jan 2020

Opened 19 Nov 2019


The National Framework for Action on Dementia 2015 – 2019  (the Framework) guides the development and implementation of actions, plans and policies to reduce the risk of dementia and further improve outcomes for people with dementia and their carers.

This consultation is a nation-wide evaluation focussing on the Framework’s seven priority areas; from increasing awareness and risk reduction through to promoting and supporting research.

The Framework can be viewed at the link here

Why your views matter

We require a broad range of responses and experiences from across Australia to gain:

  • An in depth understanding about the progress of the existing Framework.
  • Recommendations to inform options for future dementia policy in Australia from 2019 onwards.

We are seeking responses from: 

  • People with a lived experience of dementia:
    Any person who has a diagnosis of dementia, a family member or a friend who knows of and/or provides support to a person with a diagnosis of dementia.
  • Policy development or service delivery professionals:
    Health professionals including community, disability or aged care workers who are involved in providing dementia care. People who deliver services or develop policy that impacts on people with dementia and their support networks.

You are invited to participate in a two-part survey on:

  • The Framework priority areas for people with dementia and the people involved in their care and support (informal and formal); and
  • Innovations and options for future dementia policy in Australia

The survey should take between 20 to 40 minutes to complete. 

If you are a policy development or service delivery professional and also have lived experience, selecting the “Policy development, service delivery, research and advocacy professionals” option below will provide you the opportunity to respond from both perspectives, if desired.

If you would like to view the questions in full before beginning the survey you can view the print friendly pdf versions at the bottom of this page.
