Australian dementia research needs increased representation of people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
Evidence‐based practice and policy must be based on the best available evidence, which should be representative of the population.1 However, the current body of dementia research does not reflect the ethnic and cultural diversity of the Australian population. Hence, people from culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD) backgrounds may receive inequitable dementia care as there is less evidence to help optimise clinical and service decisions.
