NICE Impact report on dementia care
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published an impact report on dementia care. NICE's impact reports review how their recommendations for evidence-based and cost-effective care are being used in priority areas of the health and care system.
NICE published the first guideline on dementia in 2006 and in 2010 dementia was the focus of NICE's first quality standard, setting out priority areas for quality improvement in health and social care. An additional quality standard was produced in 2013 covering dementia: independence and wellbeing.
This February 2020 report covers:
- prevent or delay onset of dementia
- referral, diagnosis and care planning
- hospital care
- social care
- supporting carers
- spotlight on antipsychotic medicines
