Quality of Life Assessments in Individuals With Young-Onset Dementia and Their Caregivers

Dixit D, Spreadbury J, Orlando R, Hayward E and Kipps C

Quality of life (QoL) has seldom been investigated or explicitly measured in young-onset dementia (YoD). The aims of this study were (1) to investigate and compare QoL self- and proxy...

The impact of regional Tc-HMPAO single-photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging on clinician diagnostic confidence in a mixed cognitive impairment sample

Prosser AMJ, Tossici-Bolt L and Kipps CM

Aim: To assess the clinical impact of regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) single-photon-emission computed tomography (SPECT) imaging on diagnosis and clinician diagnostic confidence in a cohort of individuals with cognitive...

Clinical nurse specialist's role in young-onset dementia care

Spreadbury JH and Kipps CM

Post-diagnostic care in young-onset dementia (YoD) varies, from something that is occasionally structured, to improvised, to frequently non-existent depending on geographic region. In a few regions in England, a nurse...

Hybrid simulation modelling for dementia care services planning

Evenden D, Brailsford SC, Kipps CM, Roderick PJ and Walsh B

Dementia is an increasing problem in today’s ageing society, and meeting future demand for care is a major concern for policy-makers and planners. This paper presents a novel hybrid simulation...

Computer simulation of dementia care demand heterogeneity using hybrid simulation methods: improving population-level modelling with individual patient decline trajectories

Evenden D, Brailsford S, Kipps C, Roderick P & Walsh B

Objectives: The aim of the study was to model dementia prevalence and outcomes within an ageing population using a novel hybrid simulation model that simultaneously takes population-level and patient-level perspectives to...

The Causes and Impact of Crisis for People with Parkinson's Disease: A Patient and Carer Perspective

Fearn S, Bartolomeu Pires S, Agarwal V, Roberts HC, Spreadbury J and Kipps C

The reasons for acute hospital admissions among people with Parkinson’s disease are well documented. However, understanding of crises that are managed in the community is comparatively lacking. Most existing literature...

Progression modelling of cognitive decline and associated FDG-PET imaging features in Alzheimer’s disease

Prosser A, Evenden D, Holmes R & Kipps C

Background: Prognosis for Alzheimer’s disease is difficult, with rates of disease progression varying widely. Despite the extensive use of clinical dementia severity assessment scales to determine dementia diagnosis and to monitor...

Neuro LTC: Online integrated care plan

Chappell R & Kipps C

Complex long-term neurological conditions often require the input of several health care teams across primary and secondary care settings. Personalised care plans allow for integrated care planning and improved communication...
