Dementia 2017: Managing Demand, Improving Care

3-Jul-2017

5 December | Conference | The Studio, Cannon Street, Birmingham

Dementia is a growing challenge and one of the most-important health and care issues facing the world.

In the NHS Five Year Forward View, NHS England made a commitment to providing consistent and improved care for people with dementia and their carers across England.

Since then, there has been a significant improvement in the proportion of patients being assessed for dementia on admission to hospital and an increase in the national dementia diagnosis rate.

Featured on the 2020 Challenge on Dementia Implementation Plan, NHS England launched the Well Pathway for Dementia, a five-year transformation implementation plan focused on five areas from the patient journey: preventing, diagnosing, living, supporting and dying well.

This national framework aims to act as a vehicle to deliver the commitment to make measurable improvement in the quality of care and support for people with dementia and to increase public awareness.

Dementia 2017: Managing Demand, Improving Care will provide the opportunity to explore through practical sessions from leading organisations how we can work together to drive improvement for patients and make England the best country in the world to live with dementia.
