The DIADEM Project: Improving the Management of Diabetes and Dementia

Summary

The DIADEM project was devised to address the knowledge gap in managing patients with diabetes and dementia. The aim was to assess all patients admitted with both conditions and focus on medication review, 'de-intensification' or simplification, and an individualised care plan. The combined co-morbidity and cost of diabetes and dementia is increasing, but current evidence, especially clinically-relevant studies, is poor, with no clear understanding of ‘real-world’ management.
