Improving the Management of Diabetes in People Living with Dementia (NIHR HTA)

Summary

A realist review was conducted to identify features or mechanisms in various interventions likely to improve the management of diabetes in people with dementia. The full NIHR HTA report from this research, already summarised in a BMC Medicine article covered elsewhere, is available.

Six context-mechanism-outcome (CMO) configurations were considered:

  1. Embedding positive attitudes towards people living with dementia.
  2. Person-centred approaches to care planning.
  3. Developing workforce skills to provide flexible and tailored care.
  4. Regular contact.
  5. Family engagement.
  6. Usability of assistive technology.
