Dr Elizabeth Pritchard will present the progress to date of the pilot dementia registry (funded by the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Boosting Dementia Research Grant). The pilot aims to develop and test methods for establishing a dementia registry. This includes development of a set of clinical quality indicators (CQIs) to assist with monitoring the diagnosis and care for people living with dementia and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) in Australia. Elizabeth will discuss the formation of the CQIs and minimum data set, the collection of patient and carer reported outcomes, and how this will inform the national registry to monitor and inform quality of care for people with dementia and MCI.

Dr Elizabeth Pritchard is a Research Fellow with the Pilot Dementia Registry in the Health Services Research Unit at the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Monash University.  She is an occupational therapist, lecturer and emerging researcher in both qualitative and quantitative research designs.
