Increasing diagnosis rates in Warwickshire and Dorset
Published 1 October 2012
Pilot projects have started in Warwickshire and Dorset which aim to increase dementia diagnosis rates.
Despite growing national interest in dementia, diagnosis rates remain shockingly low.
Activity will include:
- Public awareness raising, using materials from our Worried about your memory? campaign
- Health professional engagement
- Key stakeholder engagement
- Targeted local media and marketing work
The projects will run until March 2013. Their evaluation will create a framework for future local awareness raising, and will provide evidence for the development of Alzheimer's Society's national Early Diagnosis campaign.
