Online Dementia education for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
We are a project team within the Aboriginal ageing department of Neuroscience Research Australia (NeuRA). We are currently working on creating an online training course and website for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Our aim is to provide awareness, enhance care and promote timely diagnosis for those who have dementia, their families, carers and Aboriginal Health Workers. This project is important to us as research has shown that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population has among the highest rates of Dementia observed worldwide. We require your help in completing a short survey which will provide us with insight on how you access the internet and online training courses. We will use this information to create an appropriate solution which can be easily accessed. We appreciate your time and effort. Regards, Lauren Poulos and Suwana Combo Project Coordinator.
