Development of New National Dementia Office Repository

The National Dementia Strategy Office (NDO) which was established as part of the National Dementia Strategy Implementation plan, is currently exploring ways to share/promote exemplars of best practice in Dementia care. In order to facilitate this, the NDO propose to develop a repository of examples of quality/practice/service developments that are currently happening across the country in public, private, voluntary and education settings. Links to established information and resource hubs already developed across the country will also be included.

To assist in collating this information, the NDO are inviting interested parties to complete the form which can be accessed through the link below. The NDO will subsequently develop a database from the information received that will be accessible to all services. This database will provide a focal point for gathering and disseminating current initiatives in dementia care. The information will assist the NDO in strategically planning and supporting the ongoing development of dementia care across services.  It will also assist in developing dementia-specific learning initiatives across services in line with the National Dementia Strategy objectives. It is intended that the development and availability of this repository will avoid unnecessary duplication of effort, and enhance networking and learning opportunities. The repository will be hosted as part of the HSE’s Lenus repository (www.lenus.ie).
