A National Dementia Strategy for Ireland: Signposting the Possibilities: A Clinician’s Perspective
This first of four publications in this section from the Alzheimer Society of Ireland is written by O’Connell (2012) who outlines key directions from the clinician’s perspective to be taken in ROI’s National Dementia Strategy including an emphasis on prevention, early diagnosis and access to the best available treatments. He acknowledges that people with dementia may have different priorities to clinicians and healthcare professionals and that it is important that the voice of the person with dementia is heard. Following a brief review of national dementia strategies in other countries, O’Connell outlines what he believes should be included in the Irish National Dementia Strategy.
