    Introduction: Dementia has been identified as a national health priority in Australia. It is currently difficult for clinicians to access the latest evidence based information regarding care for people with dementia and their families. In addition, it can be challenging for clinicians to interpret research results and translate relevant evidence into clinical practice. Research suggests that occupational therapists have tended to focus on assessment at the expense of treatment.
