Request for feedback: NICE draft dementia guideline

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) are very keen to reach as many stakeholders as possible to comment on their draft guidance about assessment, management and support for people living with dementia and their carers.

The draft guideline covers diagnosing and managing dementia, and supporting people living with dementia and their carers. It aims to improve care by making recommendations on training staff and on helping carers to support people living with dementia.

Who is it for?

  • Healthcare and social care professionals caring for and supporting people living with dementia
  • Commissioners and providers of dementia health and social care services
  • People living with dementia, their families and carers

This guideline will update and replace NICE guideline CG42 (published November 2006), and recommendation 1.3 of NICE technology appraisal guidance 217.

This version of the guideline contains the draft recommendations, context and recommendations for research. Information about how the guideline was developed is on the guideline’s page on the NICE website. This includes the guideline committee’s discussion and the evidence reviews (in the full guideline), the scope, and details of the committee and any declarations of interest.

The consultation closes on Tuesday 13 February 2018 at 5pm.
