What should we know about dementia in the 21st Century? A Delphi consensus study

This study delved into the underlying consensus among English-speaking dementia experts concerning contemporary knowledge about dementia. Delphi experts have identified 36 statements about dementia deemed to be “essential” to understanding the condition. These statements are primarily about care for people with dementia and their carers, but also relate to dementia characteristics, symptoms and progression, diagnosis and assessment, and treatment and prevention.
