As part of IRNDP’s aim to facilitate and support knowledge translation relating to the prevention or delay of cognitive decline and dementia we want to develop information and support for dementia risk reduction in primary healthcare settings.


For this project, we wanted to know:

  • What primary healthcare providers already know about dementia risk reduction.
  • Whether primary healthcare staff feel that further knowledge is required.
  • Where there might be barriers for dementia risk reduction in primary healthcare.


This survey is now closed. Thank you for your contributions to this work.

We will present the results of this research and the answers to the questions on the dementia risk factors as soon as the research is complete.
