A survey commissioned by the National Health and Medical Research Council has revealed that finding ways to prevent dementia, improving diagnosis and better care are considered top priorities for future dementia research.
Released today, the survey sought views from consumers (people with dementia, their family and personal carers), researchers (new and established), medical practitioners and aged care providers around Australia.
On Friday 17 October, the Australian Government’s National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) announced $540 million new funding for health and medical research. Of this, $18 million was awarded to 29 dementia research projects and researchers.
According to the NHMRC, the grants cover a range of innovative research projects, from genetic studies of twins, to studying the effects of an intergenerational activity program.
