Overview                View Programme

One year from the publication of the Challenge on Dementia 2020 Implementation Plan, Dementia 2017: Implementing Better Care is taking place to provide the opportunity to discuss the quality and consistency of dementia care across England, the initial outcomes of pilot programmes that have been created and the emerging innovations to ensure high standards of care and support for those with dementia and their families.

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK, with numbers set to rise to over 1 million by 2025. This will soar to 2 million by 2051. Risk reduction, health and care, awareness and social action, and research have been identified as the core themes that together would possible reduce these figures and make England the world-leader in dementia care.

Attending this national conference delegates will have the opportunity to learn from the organisations across the country contributing to the challenge. City devolution deals across England have the potential to provide an unprecedented opportunity to raise the quality of life for people living with dementia and in Greater Manchester, the scale of ambition is unparalleled. With the programme “Dementia United” the city is looking to transform the lived experience for people with dementia for today, but also to be at the vanguard of how health and care services are delivered in the future.

Public understanding and engagement in dementia is increasing and different sectors are becoming dementia-friendly to overcome the potential challenges facing the aim of England to become the most dementia friendly society in the world by 2020. For example, NHS England is working with ten Healthy New Towns demonstrator sites to shape the health of communities, and to rethink how health and care services can be delivered.

Dementia 2017: Implementing Better Care will explore the best practices that are moving England forward to be the best place in the world to live well with dementia. A place where people with dementia can get the support they need every day of the year, whether that be at home, in residential care, hospital or in the wider community.

Based on the progress carried out by the previous challenge in 2012, the Implementation Plan for the Prime Minister’s Challenge on Dementia 2020 sets out specific commitments across four core themes: Risk reduction; Health and care; Social Action; and Research. Risk reduction strategies aim to prevent the onset and the progression of dementia. There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that it is possible to reduce an individual’s risk of dementia living more healthily in earlier life. In terms of health and care, important progress on dementia diagnosis is being made with services achieving the national ambition of a 67.2% diagnosis rate at the end of January 2016. This supports the wider aim to provide high quality, compassionate and culturally competent care from diagnosis through to end of life care, and in all care settings. As the third core theme highlights there is still an unacceptable stigma surrounding dementia. To overcome this and to support people in living well with dementia, we need to continue to make progress on improving awareness and social action to transform the way society thinks and acts about this condition. The Government has already committed to spend at least £300m on dementia research by 2020 with the ambition to develop key infrastructure and research activity that will help to place the UK at the forefront of dementia research.

This agenda will explore how to reduce dementia inequalities from the best practice approaches across the country. The significant inconsistencies shown on the NHS Dementia Atlas released in August 2016, has encouraged national organisations such as NHS England and Public Health
England to advise on the support of people with dementia from a variety of communities. Care Quality Commission has promoted inspections to local dementia groups to get feedback about services and examine the key priorities for improving provision of quality, promoting contributions from local dementia groups, volunteers and carers.

Several organisations across the country are already contributing to this challenge. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from frontier research and risk reduction to explore the role of new drugs, innovations and treatments that might help slow the progress of this condition and improve care. Clinical trials led by pharmaceutical giant Merck have been shown to successfully target the most visible sign of the disease in the brain, raising hopes that an effective treatment could be finally within reach. With a growing elderly population who are likely to experience long-term physical and mental health conditions, pioneering new technologies such as the TIHM for dementia test bed, are working to provide the support people need to live well in their own homes, improve responsiveness of the health and care system and reducing the amount of time people spend in hospital.

Awareness and social action will be covered through case studies about emerging innovations such as Dementia Villages and Dementia Friendly Communities, where people with dementia feel supported to continue in the day-to-day activities they enjoy and lead fulfilling lives.

Join us at Dementia 2017: Implementing Better Care to hear about practical sessions from leading organisations that will encourage the adoption of key actions to make England the world-leader in dementia care, research and awareness.
