Primary care-led post diagnostic Dementia care (PriDem): developing evidence-based, person-centred sustainable models for future care
Post diagnostic dementia care, defined in the 2016 World Alzheimer Report as ‘holistic, integrated continuing care in the context of declining function and increasing needs of family carers’, varies considerably in England, with ~50% people with dementia inadequately supported. We aim to address this via a ‘task-shifted and task-shared’ primary care-led model of post diagnostic dementia care. Such an approach, with more appropriate secondary care use, is potentially more sustainable in view of the rising needs of an ageing population. We will develop and evaluate a ‘good practice’ model of primary care led, post diagnostic dementia care that will be cost effective, person-centred and sustainable. We will determine: • Factors that facilitate successful GP-led care for other long term illnesses (e.g. diabetes) and identify current examples of such dementia care (Workstream (WS)1) • The experiences of the Dementia Care Community (DCC) i.e. service users (people with dementia and their families), providers and commissioners and their views on the proposed model (WS2) and • Costs of existing GP-led model(s) via data from the ‘Modelling Outcome and cost impact of interventions for DEMentia’ (MODEM) project (WS5). Using updated NICE guidance as a framework, we will combine our findings (from WS1,2,5) to co-develop, with the DCC, primary care led model(s) of post-diagnostic dementia care (WS3). We will implement the model(s) in different settings, evaluate their acceptability and feasibility (WS4) and undertake economic modelling to estimate predicted future costs up to 2040 (WS5). Our Pathways to Impact programme (WS6) will ensure key findings influence policy/practice.
