Dementia Training Australia (DTA) is an Australian government funded consortium of four Australian Universities, and the national peak body for people living with dementia.
DTA provides access to evidence based dementia education, resources, and training for those professionally interacting with people with dementia across Australia.
DTA helps to identify professional development needs, and deliver guidance on the training options available, in order for those needs to be met. By providing recommendations and learning pathways tailored specifically to the individual or organisation, DTA aims to support the implementation of dementia knowledge into practice.
