The National Dementia Office publishes the report ‘Development of a Model for the National Dementia Registry.
The report highlights a workable model for a national dementia registry and outlines a minimum dataset for dementia. The projects aim was to develop a model for the national dementia registry for Ireland.
Recording of dementia data is poor across all care settings in Ireland, many other countries recognise the importance of having a dementia registry. They use data from the registry to support the development, operation and quality of their dementia health and social care services.
Dormant Accounts funded this study through the Department of Health (DoH) and the School of Psychology in Dublin City University conducted it.
The National Dementia Office is working to embed the implementation of the Minimum Data Set at Specialist memory services.
