Abstract

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID‐19) pandemic has led to reflections around reforming Australia’s health care system.1 In view of future reforms, this article is intended to provoke policy and clinical discussion regarding what an effective, efficient model of service delivery meeting the needs of people with dementia and their families may look like. The opinion presented here belongs to the members of the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) National Institute for Dementia Research Special Interest Group in Rehabilitation and Dementia.

For the purposes of this article, we define a model of service delivery as the systemic framework through which services are organised, accessed, funded and delivered.
