                        People with mild/moderate dementia of all
                         types should be given the opportunity to
                         participate in a structured group cognitive
                         stimulation programme … provided by
                         workers with training and supervision …
                         irrespective of any anti-dementia drug
                         received …’

• n = 201 - 23 centres (18 care homes, 5 day care)

• A multicentre Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT)

• Significant improvement in cognition & quality of life
• Cost effective (Knapp et al., 2006)

• Numbers needed to treat for cognition = 6
• similar to dementia medication
Maintenance CST Trial – first results

   236 participants (123 MCST/123 CST only)

   After 6 months MCST
     Quality of life better

   After 3 months MCST significant benefits
     Quality of life better (proxy)
      Activities of Daily Living better

   MMSE improved in MCST group 0.85 points
 What is the Individual CST programme?

• Delivered by carer 2 times a week for
20-30 minutes
• 75 individual CST sessions
• 25 week programme
• Themed activities eg: Number Games

   consultant mobile number

   Quick response (same day)

   Talks/ training at surgeries/selected care homes

   GP Face to face discussions (eg acute confusion)

   At care homes able to identify difficulties before crisis (no admissions for 2 yrs)

   CMHT joint visits, support, discussion

   Clinic - emergency slots for patients in crisis

   Frequent follow ups for acutely unwell patients (2-4 weekly)

   Encourage patients to ring in case of problems (contact sheet with secretaries number)
Building on Innovative services
with Prof Burns
‘future of old age psychiatry’
   Bed occupancy - <10% of RCPsych bed numbers

   Access - support

   Training - development

   Liaising - providing the missing link

   1/3 of beds of other NELFT consultants

   Changing practice:
       reduces admissions
       cost effective
       popular with CMHT, care homes and GPs
       adds to effects of home treatment services
       takes time for full effects
Memory Services National Accreditation
Programme (MSNAP)
   58 members

       30 in review stage

Prime Minister’s

Challenge on dementia
       increase number of MSNAP accredited clinics
       promote research in clinics
Four main stages to the accreditation process:

 Self   review – 3 months

 Peer   review – 1 day visit

 MSNAP Accreditation     Advisory Committee (AAC) – RCPsych, BPS,
RCN, Alz Soc, COT

Royal College of Psychiatrists’   Education, Training and Standards
Committee (ETSC)
   Increase in % referrals seen 4-6 weeks

   Reduction in % staff lack of training funding

   Funding to open physical examination unit

   Assigned a medical lead for the service

   New information leaflets/packs developed for people with dementia and

   Implementation of checklist for assessments

Where we are – size of the challenge…
 Nationally, there are approx 700,000 people in the UK with dementia. Expected
  to double in the next thirty years to 1.4 million with the cost of services/care
  increasing to over £50billion a year*

continuing to improve…

   The National Dementia Strategy (2009) outlined 17 objectives to achieve
    improvements in dementia care.

   Transformation project aims to improve care in a number of key areas:

     Improve awareness - through knowledge transfer and training
     Earlier diagnosis and intervention - through robust pathways
      across the system
     High quality care - through translation of research
      into action and training
Achievements and next steps……..
   Service transformation:
       Standardised screening tools
       Early detection and treatment
       Consistent delivery of Memory Services
       Integrated Community Treatment Teams with BHRUT
       End of life care pathways

   Research & Development event later in year:
       Showcase dementia diagnosis and care
       Research into action.

   Training:
       Train the trainer programme with Stirling University in progress
       Promotion: Website with materials available for sharing

DIST Role within primary care
   Assess and refer to appropriate services (i.e. CAS, memory service,
    social services & 3rd sector services , Community)
   Provide short term intervention (6 weeks), monitoring and support
    and act on any increase risks
   Work in collaboration with AAT (Admission Avoidance Team), Care
    Home Liaison Nurses, GPs, Community Teams ,OPMHT

    medication and behaviour management and symptoms & UTI
   Provide faster access to services and earlier diagnosis
DIST Role within secondary care

•Work alongside AAT, CCMT and social services to avoid inappropriate
admissions and follow up in the community;

•Work alongside Clinical nurse Specialist, Complex Case Management
Team and Social Services to reduce the length of stay in hospital;

•Promote    and facilitate the use of intermediate care for people with

Case Study 2
 Patient ‘B’

 Referred by GP, lives with husband, has carer 1 x daily. No formal diagnosis but experiencing
 memory problems. Becoming agitated, confused, aggressive, keeps pulling her catheter out (feels
 she does not need it) and at one time used scissors, hoarding tablets. Refused to go to A&E or
 hospital. Husband is burnt out.

 What we did:-
 •Assessed and monitored risk and supported for 4 weeks;
 •Requested an urgent psychiatric review of medication;
 •Liaised with district nursing team to support with the catheter issue on a daily basis and worked
 closely with the team;
 •Liaised with social services for an increase in care package and future respite for her husband;
 •DIST referred to the memory service for further assessment;
 •Patient transferred to the mental health services after 4 weeks
                                      Admission to hospital avoided

The Context for Mental Health

National Dementia Strategy
‘..specific provision needs to be made in terms of
specialist community mental health teams and inpatient
services for older people with mental disorder.

The separation of ‘organic’ and ‘functional’ disorders in
terms of service provision is essentially a false dichotomy
and one that is likely to disadvantage people with
dementia with complex needs and their family carers.’

Why Liaison…Dementia and
Severe Mental Illness in Acute care
 Dementia: 42%>65 years admitted have   dementia, 50%
 undiagnosed, 3X more likely to die, 43% admissions avoidable
 (Sampson et al 2009)

 Delirium: doubles Length of Stay (LOS) and halves chances of
 returning home successfully. 30 - 40% is preventable.

                                      LOS, mortality rates, health
 Depression: associated with increased
 care costs and dependency. Low detection rates

 Solutions…. Liaison canimprove outcomes (clinical, LOS, re-
 admission health, care utilisation) and refer to community
