Background There around 100,000 new stroke cases and over a million people living with its consequences annually in the United Kingdom (UK). This has large impacts on health and social care, unpaid carers and lost productivity. We aimed to estimate associated costs. Methods We estimated 2014/15 annual mean cost per person and aggregate UK cost of stroke for individuals aged ≥40 from a societal perspective. Health and social care costs in the first and subsequent years after stroke were estimated...
Background The number of older people with dementia and the cost of caring for them, already substantial, are expected to rise due to population ageing. Objective This study makes projections of the number of older people with dementia receiving unpaid care or using care services and associated costs in England. Methods The study drew on up-to-date information for England from multiple sources including data from the CFASII study, output from the PACSim dynamic microsimulation model, ONS populat...

Background Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a common lifelong condition affecting 1 in 100 people. ASD affects how a person relates to others and the world around them. Difficulty responding to sensory information (noise, touch, movement, taste, sight) is common, and might include feeling overwhelmed or distressed by loud or constant low-level noise (e.g. in the classroom). Affected children may also show little or no response to these sensory cues. These ‘sensory processing difficulties’ are a...

Objectives: DETERMIND (DETERMinants of quality of life, care and costs, and consequences of INequalities in people with Dementia and their carers) is designed to address fundamental, and, as yet unanswered, questions about inequalities, outcomes and costs following diagnosis with dementia. These answers are needed to improve the quality of care and equity of access to care, and therefore the quality of life, of people with dementia and their carers. Method: DETERMIND is a programme of research c...

Context: Globally, populations are ageing, with people increasingly likely to die with chronic progressive illness. In this context, there is widespread interest in advance care planning (ACP), where people are supported to think about and express preferences concerning their future care. However, to date there has been limited systematic implementation. Objectives: In a purposive sample of 12 international health and care organisations working to provide system-wide ACP support, we examined org...

Objectives To explore whether advance care planning is associated with place of death in England, as well as with sufficiency of support to care for a dying person at home, overall quality of care and pain management. Methods We undertook secondary analysis of data from the National Survey of Bereaved People, 2013, based on a stratified random sample of 49 607 people selected from 150 111 eligible registered deaths (n=22 661, 46% response rate). The indicator of advance care planning used was ha...

Introduction In low/middle-income countries (LMICs), the prevalence of people diagnosed with dementia is expected to increase substantially and treatment options are limited, with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors not used as frequently as in high-income countries (HICs). Cognitive stimulation therapy (CST) is a group-based, brief, non-pharmacological intervention for people with dementia that significantly improves cognition and quality of life in clinical trials and is cost-effective in HIC. How...
