The Danish National Dementia Plan
In 2017 the Danish Ministry of Health launched the national dementia strategy 2025 and an action plan with 23 initiatives for 2017-2019.
All initiatives were active in 2018 and DDRC were involved in many. DDRC has responsibility for managing 3 initiatives:
- A new case-finding tool for use in primary care
- A tool-box for psycho-social support, counselling and teaching of patients and caregivers
- Concepts for dementia-friendly hospitals DDRC also contributed to the completion of Denmark’s first national research strategy, an initiative headed by the Danish Health Authority and published in December 2018.
