In the UK, at any point in time, 25% of all hospital inpatients have dementia. If Dementia was a country, its GDP would be 18th in the world.

Services are stretched with dealing with demand, and this project will involve developing mathematical simulation models to address different aspects of dementia management ranging from individual patient care and models of disease progression, through to system-level care delivery and capacity issues.

Outcome

The key aim is to make these models useful and usable in practice, so that NHS and Local Authorities commissioners can identify new ways in which they can more effectively manage the anticipated growth in demand.
