Background

Starting date: 01/05/2011

The COMPAS STUDY: Care for people with dementia and their caregivers

Problem statement

In the Netherlands, patients and caregivers are highly satisfied with case management. However, various models of case management are implemented, differing with respect to how services are delivered and by whom, the training provided to its staff and the means of financing. It is unknown whether there are also differences in clinical and cost-effectiveness between these case management models compared with usual care.
