Dementia Mini Audit

Dementia contributes to significant loss of healthy years to Australians aged over 65 and is the leading cause of burden of disease in older Australians.  Correct identification of dementia and management based on clinical practice guidelines can help decrease the burden of disease and improve the lives of those affected and their carers and loved ones.

The Activity

You will be required to identify five patients aged over 65 who have received a dementia diagnosis and

  • Reflect on
    • How you screened and diagnosed these patients i
    • What sceening tools and cognitive test were performed
    • If referral was required/made to assist with diagnosis
    • What management was implemented within the first year of diagnosis including pharmacological and non-pharmacological measures
  • Reflect on your practice in comparison to the best practice guidelines
  • identify areas for improvement in practice and formulate an action plan to address these areas.

This activity can be completed via the online course.

This activity is designed for GPs and GP registrars.


This course was extremely valuable to look at the timing of administration of screening tests. It was useful to see their role in a health assessment and the need to get history from family members where possible.

I found this activity provided a great opportunity to reflect on practice and approach to dementia diagnosis and management.

The activity provides a user-friendly framework for reviewing specific patient cases and identify learnings applicable to practice more broadly.

I acquired useful knowledge regarding dementia and management with good CPD points.
