Við stefnumótunarvinnuna var horft fram til ársins 2030 en aðgerðaáætlunin gildir til ársins 2025 og verður þá endurskoðuð.

Þau málefnasvið sem tekin eru fyrir í aðgerðaáætluninni eru:

2. Forvarnir.

4. Virkni, sjálfshjálp og stuðningur.
5. Rétt þjónusta miðað við stig heilabilunar.
6. Umfang, rannsóknir, þekking og hæfni.

Undir hverju málefnasviði eru birtar áherslur ráðherra, þær aðgerðir sem ákveðið hefur verið að ráðast í, áhrif þeirra á samfélagið og framtíðarsýn við lok gildistíma áætlunarinnar árið 2030 sem jafnframt er gildistími samþykktrar heilbrigðisstefnu.

The work behind this action plan and the policy mark a turning point in this country and sets out a clear long-term vision for services for people with dementia. The strategic work was looked at until the year 2030, but the action plan is valid until the year 2025 and will then be revised.

The issues addressed in the action plan are:
1. Right of self-determination, patient participation and legal environment.
2. Prevention.
3. Timely diagnosis of dementia in the right place and follow-up after diagnosis.
4. Activity, self-help and support.
5. Proper service based on the degree of dementia.
6. Scope, research, knowledge and skills.

Under each area of responsibility are the Minister's key points, the actions that have been decided to be undertaken, their impact on society, and their vision for the end of the 2030 plan.
