Project Description

Prof Henry Brodaty led the NSW Dementia Policy Team to assist NSW Health and Ageing, Disability and Homecare to develop a planned, comprehensive and coordinated response to the expected increase in dementia. He was the Chair of the NSW Dementia Expert Advisory Group.

The key responsibility was the development of the NSW Dementia Services Framework. The framework describes outcomes and service requirements from dementia awareness risk reduction, diagnosis and assessment, information and counselling, community support services, acute care for episodic illness, behavioural disturbance, residential care and palliative care.
