Dementia Diagnosis Post diagnostic support for people with dementia and carers Care in Hospitals Care in Homes Care at home End of life Care Appropriate use of antipsychotics Prevention
Known dementia All emergency admissions aged over 75 Dementia pathway Care as usual Has the person been more forgetful in the last 12 months to the extent that it has significantly affected their daily life? No known dementia Diagnostic assessment Dementia CQUIN: FAIR (Find, Assess and Investigate, Refer) Feedback to GP Positive Inconclusive Negative Diagnostic review, if indicated 1 2 3 21 3 Referral FindAssess and InvestigateRefer Clinical Diagnosis of delirium noyes no yes
Dementia CQUIN 2013/14 Success over 4,000 referrals a month Original indicators, from 2012/13, still in place – Find, Assess, Investigate and Refer This now triggers 60% of the payments Two new elements to the CQUIN for 2013/14 10%: Clinical leadership for dementia and appropriate training of staff 30%: Ensuring that carers of people with dementia in hospital feel adequately supported Implementing the CQUIN will help address some of the issues in the RCPsych Report.
Who was invited to participate? All general acute hospitals, or those providing general acute services on more than one ward that admit people over the age of 65, in England and Wales Participation in the audit Number of hospitals participating 98% (210/215) of eligible hospitals in England and Wales –Representing 100% of Trusts/Health Boards Data collection Data were collected between April and October 2012 210 organisational checklists were submitted 7987 case notes were submitted (from 206 hospitals)
Governance Assessments Antipsychotic prescription: protocol and practice: Liaison psychiatry services Hospital discharge and transfers Information and communication Staff training Audit themes
Staff training There is notable improvement in the number of hospitals having a training and knowledge framework in place. Further improvement could be made in the provision of dementia awareness training in induction programmes. Key findings: 78% of hospitals have a training and knowledge framework or strategy that identifies necessary skill development in working with and caring for people with dementia. In the first round of audit, under a quarter of hospitals had this in place. 41% hospitals do not include dementia awareness training in their staff induction programmes.
Our Mandate Specific to Dementia 1.All NHS staff ……… will go through a dementia awareness programme (foundation level) March 2014 2.100,000 staff have foundation level training by March 2014 3.All NHS staff that look after patients with dementia will receive foundation level dementia training. This will programme will: Enable staff to spot the early symptoms of dementia Know how to interact with those with dementia Signpost staff to the most appropriate care: it will be backed up with more in-depth training of expert leaders and staff working with people with dementia 4. The training should also raise awareness of the increased likelihood of mental health problems in those people with long-term conditions
Conclusion Welcome increase in key items measured Improvement still required in many factors affecting care Raising quality of care remains a national strategic priority 79% of Acute Trusts have signed up to the Dementia Action Alliance The Right Care call for action Future round of audit will take place. We recommend including: – perspective of people with dementia and their carers on involvement in care and discharge, and the quality of communication with staff; – staff perspective on training provision and support available to provide good quality care.
