Abstract

The Department of Health has increased the emphasis on earlier detection of dementia among patients aged over 75 admitted to hospital in an emergency in England. Introduction of a Commissioning for Quality and Innovation (CQUIN) payment provides an incentive for NHS Trusts to screen patients for memory problems on admission. This article reports on how improvements were made to the screening process across three wards in a large university teaching hospital.
