Doing research to identify the ingredients of good dementia care is one thing, transferring them to practice another. This article focuses on how to embed good dementia care in education for primary care professionals (e.g. general practitioners). That is an important professional group, caring for many people with dementia still living in the community. The article concludes with some key recommendations that everybody developing or giving dementia training should be aware of.
