Modelling costs and outcomes for dementia: MODEM project launch
Date: 15th May 2014, 13:30 - 16:00
Venue: NAB LG.08, New Academic Building, London School of Economics
Dementia – considered one of the leading challenges for the country as the population ages – has been flagged as a high priority for government, the NHS and local councils. Evidence suggests that there are currently 670,000 people with dementia in England, with annual costs of £23 billion with the contribution of family carers being valued at £8 billion.
In December, the G8 countries held a Dementia Summit in London. The joint declaration from the eight Health Ministers included a commitment “to improve the quality of life for people with dementia and their carers while reducing emotional and financial burden.”
This event launched a new collaborative study funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and the National Institute for Health Research.
