A commitment made in the National Dementia Strategy programme has been to develop a framework of dementia-specific quantitative indicators.
These metrics are intended to provide information on the progress that Councils and PCTs have made in relation to priority objectives in the Strategy. The metrics provide a view of progress in relation to four priority objectives:
- O2: Good-quality early diagnosis and intervention for all.
- O6: Improved community personal support services.
- O8: Improved quality of care for people with dementia in general hospitals.
- O11: Living well with dementia in care homes.
More information on these measures, and the metrics themselves, can be downloaded from the National Dementia Strategy Information Portal.
