CADDY (CFASII Dementia Diagnosis Study). Dementia undetected or undiagnosed in primary care: the prevalence, causes and consequences

This South Norfolk CCG sponsored study aims to provide new information on the proportion of people living with dementia who are at different stages of the diagnostic process.  Between 2016 and 2017 the CADDY study team asked the GPs of participants of the CFASII Cohort with a study diagnosis of dementia and who consented to linkage:
• whether or not a diagnosis of dementia was recorded in their GP record,
• to describe the process of presentation with a cognitive complaint,
• details of referrals to specialist services and subsequent findings.

A poster covering the preliminary data analysis was presented at the Alzheimer's Society Conference in May 2017 and the slides from the study presentation at an Alzheimer’s Research UK public event held at the UEA on 14 June 2017 can be viewed below.
