The DIAMOND-Lewy programme was funded by the National Institute for Health Research.
Through the NIHR funded DIAMOND-Lewy (Improving the diagnosis and management of Lewy body dementia) study, evidence – based toolkits were developed for the assessment and diagnosis of Lewy body dementia, and for its management.
These toolkits are designed for use by healthcare professionals who have experience of diagnosing and managing people with dementia, and cover dementia with Lewy bodies, and Parkinson’s disease dementia.
There are 2 assessment toolkits and a management toolkit as follows:
Assessment toolkit for dementia with Lewy bodies, specifically designed for use in memory services
1. Assessment toolkit for Lewy body dementia, specifically designed for use in movement disorder services
2. Management toolkit for Lewy body dementia, for use in all services.
The following videos explain the toolkits and how they should be used.
