  • We report a dementia knowledge-to-practice exchange activity to describe the process undertaken to improve care and support for older adults living with dementia. We describe the team’s early development and decision-making process (including its early focus on family physicians), and eventual creation of a Dementia Pocket Card tool. The tool can support health professionals and families with dementia case-finding, assessment, diagnosis and appropriate service provision.
