Discovery, Diagnostics and Management:
A new era for Dementia
The Australian Dementia Network supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care is proud to deliver the Australian Dementia Research Forum 2023.
The Australian Dementia Network (ADNeT) brings together Australia’s leading scientists, clinicians and researchers, across 17 institutions, to establish the largest national network of experts in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care of Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia.
ADNeT strives to improve the quality of clinical care for people with dementia and mild cognitive impairment by accelerating early, best-practice detection and diagnosis and facilitating access to new and effective treatment therapies through clinical trials.
The ADNeT initiative comprises of three key pillars - the Clinical Quality Registry, Memory Clinics and Screening and Trials- that work synergistically to deliver tangible benefits for people living with dementia and their care partners.
The Australian Dementia Network is proudly inclusive to all groups and communities, collaborating with Dementia Australia on public involvement and home to Early Mid-Career Researchers as well as the Younger-Onset Dementia Special Interest Group.

The Australian Government Department of Health and Aged Care develops and delivers policies and programs on health, aged care and sport. We work with a wide range of stakeholders to ensure better health and wellbeing for all Australians.
The department is responsible for administering aged care legislation and developing policy that supports high quality, safe and affordable aged care.
We deliver a broad range of programs relating to aged care, including the Commonwealth Home Support Program (CHSP), and funding for residential aged care. We also support people to navigate and access aged care services through My Aged Care.
The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety final report challenges us to create better aged care services and a better standard of care for older people.
In response, the Australian Government is committed to making changes to aged care to deliver safety, dignity and quality in care for every older person across our aged care system.
