Title: Draft Dementia Quality Standard for Consultation - NICE
Post by: kevinkelleher on January 5 2010, 12:37 pm
Consultation documents

    * Dementia quality standard
    * Comments proforma

Please note that this standard is provisional and may change after consultation with stakeholders and fieldwork.

Since the drafting of the dementia quality standard there has been a Department of Health policy statement on the prescribing of antipsychotic drugs for people with dementia. We would welcome comments during the consultation period from stakeholders regarding whether the quality standard should specifically address this issue.
Background documents

The following supporting documents were used in formulating the draft quality standards. These are working documents which are provided as background information only and are not for consultation.

    * Dementia briefing paper
    * NICE Dementia clinical guideline
    * Minutes of the first meeting of the Dementia Topic Expert Group

How to submit your comments

    * comments received after the consultation deadline (5pm on 15 January 2010).
    * confidential information or other material that you would not wish to be made public.

What will happen to your comments

The quality standards Programme Team and Topic Expert Groups will review all eligible comments received at the end of the consultation and will refine the quality standards in light of this information.

NICE reserves the right to summarise and edit comments received during consultations, or not to publish them at all, where in the reasonable opinion of the Institute, the comments are voluminous, publication would be unlawful or publication would be otherwise inappropriate.
