    • Dementia

      This NICE quality standard defines a high standard of care within this topic area. It provides specific, concise quality statements, measures and audience descriptors to provide patients and the public, health and social care professionals, commissioners and service providers with definitions of high-quality care.

      This quality standard covers the care provided by health and social care staff in direct contact with people with dementia in hospital, community, home-based, group care, residential or specialist care settings.

      This quality standard should be considered in conjunction with NICE Quality Standard 30 on supporting people to live well with dementia (QS30).

      January 2014: Following the independent review of the use of the Liverpool Care Pathway (LCP) for the dying patient and the subsequent announcement of the phasing out of the LCP, reference to the LCP has been removed from this quality standard.
