Improving the experience of diagnosis

These checklists have been created using the recommendations from The Angela Project, the largest study of young onset dementia carried out in the UK.  They are designed to help improve the experience of diagnosis.  

One diagnosis experience checklist is for use by people who may have young onset dementia and their family members. It sets out the experience a person should expect during the process of assessment and diagnosis and what to do if the level of care does not meet these standards.

The other checklist is for healthcare professionals who are involved in the process of assessing and diagnosing dementia to help them to better understand the needs of younger people going through this process.
