Dementia cquin 2013 14

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.

Staff training
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

  • All NHS staff ……… will go through a dementia awareness programme (foundation level) March 2014

  • 100,000 staff have foundation level training by March 2014

  • 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

Our Mandate Specific to Dementia


Conclusion
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.

Dementia Diagnosis and post diagnostic support

Sliding doors - Mr Smith aged 79

Sedated on admission, discharged to care home


Dementia Diagnosis and post diagnostic support

Sliding doors - Mr Smith aged 79

What can happen…….

Becomes distressed and agitated one Saturday night

Seen by on call GP and admitted to hospital

Diagnosed with delirium secondary to UTI

History of two years memory loss, wife not managing well

Sedated on admission, discharged to care home

What could happen…….

Identified as having dementia two years ago

Supported by a Dementia Advisor

Wife notices he is “not himself” one Tuesday

GP who knows him visits and prescribes antibiotic for a UTI

Recovers – no need for hospital admission


So………………….

  • Awareness of dementia is at its highest

  • Diagnosis rate needs attention

  • Support is the key

  • Early vs timely diagnosis: benefits

  • Recast dementia as a Long term condition managed in primary care

  • Population screening not appropriate

  • Dementia rarely travels alone

  • Primary care memory services

  • Prevention

  • Three things to do
