A dementia evidence toolkit providing an online database of over 1200 clinical research studies and summaries of the current evidence has been produced. The toolkit is available at this website:

It will help staff who plan care services and treatment for dementia and their carers to make choices based on the best evidence about which services work and their costs.

The toolkit is the result of research carried out at researchers at the Personal Social Services Research Unit, London School of Economics and Political Science (PSSRU at LSE) and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).
