Practice guideline to improve care for people with dementia by promoting accurate diagnosis and the most effective interventions, and improving the organisation of services. Based on the best available evidence the guideline provides recommendations on: integrating health and social care; prevention and early identification; diagnosis and assessment; interventions for cognitive and non-cognitive symptom; interventions for comorbid emotional disorders in people with dementia; palliative care; and support for carers. The guide is for health and social care staff who work with people with dementia and their carers, and those who work with older people and people with learning disabilities. This guidance has been updated and replaced by NICE guideline NG97. (Edited publisher abstract)
