Dementia: Assessment, Diagnosis and Management Pathway

The Map of Medicine has developed a comprehensive pathway that highlights dementia services and can be adapted for local service provision. Developed in collaboration with specialists from the Royal College of Physicians, Royal College of Psychiatrists, Royal College of General Practitioners and Alzheimer's Society, the recently published pathway is a clear concise resource for the diagnosis and management of dementia at the point of care.

The updated pathway now has three pages: assessment, diagnosis and management of dementia.

The assessment page covers:

  • important investigations
  • red flags
  • knowledge sharing
  • when to refer for memory assessment services
  • information to support carers

The diagnosis page gives greater detail on:

  • further investigations
  • differential diagnoses and co-morbidities
  • diagnostic criteria for dementia
  • management of predominant causes

The management of dementia page provides:

  • information on developing a treatment and care plan
  • pharmacological information
  • when to refer the patient
  • shared care
  • palliative care
