dc.descriptionA lot has happened in dementia care nationally and internationally since 2012 when we wrote Creating Excellence in Dementia Care: a Research Review for Ireland’s National Dementia Strategy. That report provided the government with a critical baseline of research and policy analysis upon which to build its initial dementia strategy. The Irish National Dementia Strategy was published in December 2014 and, almost immediately after, systems were put in place to support its implementation. There has been action on a number of fronts since then, especially in relation to: raising public and professional awareness and understanding of dementia; workforce training and education; intensive home care packages; and timely diagnosis and intervention. A new National Dementia Office has also been established staffed by dedicated health care professionals and others committed to social change and to improving and expanding dementia services. While the transformation of care for people with dementia is on-going, real progress has been achieved within a relatively short period of time. The current report is not intended as an evaluation of the National Dementia Strategy or its aftermath in relation to implementation. Rather, it is a reflection on various aspects of care for people with dementia in Ireland and internationally with a view to informing future developments in dementia policy in the country. Some chapters are analytical and build on the earlier work contained in the Creating Excellence Report, others are retrospective analyses focusing on innovations in the organisation and delivery of care, while the remainder are prospective, sometimes aspirational narratives on what should happen in the future. The international dimension of dementia is explicitly covered in the report. We believe, like in other countries such as Australia, Scotland, France and Norway, that have now advanced to their second and in some cases third or fourth Dementia Strategies, that there should be a second National Dementia Strategy in Ireland. The ideas presented in this report can lay the foundations for the next iteration of the National Dementia Strategyen
