Bury Mild Cognitive Impairment Pathway
What we did
- Mild cognitive impairment is a condition in which someone has minor problems with cognition eg problems affecting memory or thinking. In mild cognitive impairment these difficulties are worse than would normally be expected for a healthy person of their age. Whilst the symptoms are not severe enough to interfere significantly with daily life, and so are not defined as dementia, the condition can cause significant distress and further decline in health and wellbeing. A revised pathway incorporating both dementia and mild cognitive impairment was co-designed with GPs.
- Mild cognitive impairment test bed for Greater Manchester, piloting the Greater Manchester approach to mild cognitive impairment (paper agreed in 2019). For further information on the Greater Manchester paper, please see here
- The mild cognitive impairment diagnostic and post diagnostic pathway is now in place with positive feedback received from stakeholders
