The NRHA submission to the Senate Community Affairs Committee inquiry on the care and management of Australians living with dementia and behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD) reports on relevant priority recommendations from the 12th National Rural Health Conference, Adelaide, 2013.
