Diagnosis, post-diagnostic support, care and treatment

2018: Comparsion of National Dementia Strategies

In all of the strategies, the majority of commitments and actions are focused on issues relating to the care and support of people for people with dementia. Significant attention was given in all strategies to the coordination of health, social care and other supports in community settings, as was the need to ensure that professionals working in these fields were sufficiently qualified and skilled to be able to deliver the highest quality care.

The following sub-sections have been created to encompass the different commitments and issues within strategies, providing an overview of the approaches to these. Across the strategies examined, different emphasis and linkages were made, reflecting the health and care systems, structures and policies within each country.

As such, these sub-sections may contain aspects which overlap with other themes (e.g. where workforce development or awareness raising is a tool to improve diagnosis). However, the content of the subsections reflects the framing of the issue within the strategy in which it was found e.g. if a strategy committed to an awareness campaign under the heading of ‘diagnosis’ in the strategy, it has been included under the heading of ‘diagnosis’ in this report.
