Abstract

Dementia is a growing health and social concern for all Australians. Whilst the prevalence of dementia amongst Australia's indigenous people is unclear, there is some evidence that dementia rates are five times that of the general population. To date no studies have examined dementia knowledge in indigenous communities.
