Peninsula study on people with dementia

Developing accurate ways of monitoring how many people are living with dementia in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region is the focus of a new study by doctors and researchers from Peninsula Health and Monash University.

The joint research team will look at how well dementia is recorded as a health condition in people who present to the health service and how this can be improved.

To do this, they will compare how medical information is recorded for people who do not have dementia with people who are living with it.

‘All of our research into dementia aims to improve the way our health service manages the care of people living with dementia and direct services to where they are most needed,’ said Professor of Medicine Velandai Srikanth.
