A National Approach to Dementia Training
Funded by the Australian Government, Dementia Training Australia (DTA) is a consortium of experts in dementia care and workforce training.
Applying a ‘hub and spoke’ model to enable national delivery of training, DTA comprises a network of teams, with leadership provided by six organisations:
- University of Wollongong (Consortium lead and Central Coordination)
- Alzheimer’s Australia
- La Trobe University
- Queensland University of Technology
- University of Western Australia
- Wicking Dementia Research and Education Centre (University of Tasmania)
DTA is a service established to provide dementia-specific training to aged care, health care professionals, undergraduate trainees, and a range of other professionals and community service providers.
