Comprehensive approach to modelling outcome and cost impacts of interventions for dementia

Lead Research Organisation: London School of Economics & Pol Sci
Department Name: Personal Social Services Research Unit

Abstract

Dementia has enormous impacts on health and quality of life for people with the illness, their families and other people who care for them. Many people with dementia need care in many areas of their lives, and use a range of health and social care services, as well as getting support from their unpaid carers. Many people with dementia eventually move into care homes. The costs of caring for people with dementia can therefore be high. As the UK population ages over the coming decades, the number of people with dementia will increase considerably. A big challenge facing the country is how to provide high-quality treatment and support to these individuals in ways that are acceptable to them and at a cost considered by society to be affordable.

In England, care and support arrangements are guided by the National Dementia Strategy; there are similar commitments in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Last year the Prime Minister announced his personal 'Challenge' on dementia. Dementia is now getting unprecedented attention: it is a high priority for government, the NHS and local councils. Our research will feed new evidence into this national debate to help decision-makers at many levels in health and social care systems to meet the needs and respond to the preferences of people with dementia and their carers in ways that make best use of the country's resources.

We will examine existing data to get a clearer understanding of the links between a number of factors: the characteristics of individuals and families, their dementia-related and other needs for care and support, and the services and treatments that could be available to them. We will look at the effects of care, support and treatments on outcomes for individuals and carers - how those interventions can improve their health and wellbeing - and also on the costs of support.

With this information we will first make projections of how many people there will be with dementia over the period to 2040, what family or other unpaid support they are likely to have available, and what it will cost to provide care services. Second, we will examine whether there are better ways to support people with dementia and their carers by introducing new forms of care and treatment. For this part of the research we will rely on previous studies that have examined whether these interventions improve health and wellbeing, and at what cost. We will identify those 'new ways' by reviewing previous studies of dementia care and treatment (and also reviewing ways to prevent or delay dementia). We will look for evidence on, e.g., medications, cognitive stimulation and other therapies, exercise programmes, nutrition advice, telecare, community initiatives, respite and training for carers.

We will collect new data from 300 people with dementia and their carers, looking at their lives, needs and care at two time points over 12 months. We will not be testing any interventions with these people. Instead we need information to help make the best use of data that we can draw from previous studies. We will also conduct interviews and set up focus groups so that we can get 'experiential' evidence, including information on people's preferences.

We will pull all this evidence together to simulate what would be likely to happen if interventions with proven benefits for people with dementia and/or their carers were more widely adopted nationally over the coming decades. We are particularly interested in the economic implications: how the future costs of care might be reduced while health and wellbeing are improved.

We will develop a publicly available tool (accessible via the Web) to enable commissioners, providers, charities, individuals and families to use our evidence to make projections of future costs under different assumptions about population needs, services and treatments. We will work with people with dementia, carers and other potential users of our research at all stages of the project.

Planned Impact

Our project will generate unusually rich insights into the needs and circumstances of people with dementia over future decades, the health and wellbeing consequences of a range of interventions, and cost implications across all relevant budgets. These insights (made available as far as possible during the study) will be of relevance to national and local decision-makers, people with dementia, families and the public. We plan continuous, informative engagement with relevant communities. Inputs from our Advisory and Reference Groups will be key.

We will also establish an Impact Advisory Group, composed of chief executives and/or public policy leads of a range of key public and other bodies (e.g. relevant royal colleges, DH, Alzheimer's Society, Age UK, Carers UK). This high-level group will meet to discuss key project milestones, helping us to tailor our work to ensure effective translation for policy discussion and service development, with the aim of improving the lives of people with dementia and carers.

We will seek dialogue with some Councils (and ADASS and LGA) to discuss what they and partner Clinical Commissioning Groups would find helpful to assist in planning public health, health and social care interventions. Links to the NHS Commissioning Board, Public Health England and Think Local Act Personal will be important too.

We will present findings at regular intervals to stakeholders and to brief relevant parliamentary committees, all party parliamentary groups, parliamentary inquiries, relevant consultations and non-governmental stakeholders. We have good experience of this (e.g. our earlier macro-simulation models have been instrumental in guiding government thought in the area of need for and cost of long term care through the DH and in evidence to the House of Commons Health Committee, Dilnot Commission on the Funding of Care and Support, and the House of Lords Select Committee on Public Service and Demographic Change). Interim findings will be discussed with research users and put in the public domain as soon as possible via briefing notes and discussion papers. External designers will help us produce infographics and visual representations within texts. We will disseminate interim findings through a dedicated blog and tweets. We will assess research impact by asking stakeholders how well our interim/final findings, and in due course the model made publicly available, have assisted policy development and planning of services. We will track citations to our work (policy documents, parliamentary reports, media).

At the end of the project, we will produce a range of outputs:

- a policy-based report outlining findings and associated implications for next steps

- an overall project summary and guide for the wider public, connecting research findings to the everyday life and challenges of people with dementia, families and carers. This will include infographics, pictures and real-life testimonials to contextualise and humanise the academic evidence. We will look to use animation in the form of the RSA's 'Animate' series; it would be uploaded to relevant websites and social media sites

- the web-based interactive legacy model will be free to use by commissioners, providers, researchers and general public

- we will hold seminars with stakeholders and experts during the project to present interim findings and discuss scenarios for modelling. We will hold a major event at the end of the project to present findings to central and local government, voluntary organisations, people with dementia, carers and academics. We will present our findings at seminars and conferences arranged by others.

Description 1) Risk factors of cognitive impairment
Findings from this component of the study suggest that the social activities of individuals and their social networks help to maintain steady levels of cognition, in addition to their education. Researchers from the University of Southampton (Jitka Pikhartova and Ann Bowling) investigated a hypothesis drawn from the literature that the following factors might be associated with cognition at 50 years old: health behaviours, social support and social net in adolescence, and socio-economic characteristics during childhood and adulthood.
The team used data from the National Child Development Study (NCDS). This is a longitudinal data set which follows the lives of 17,000 adults born in a single week in 1958. The associations between the possible risk factors and cognition at age of 50 were analysed using linear regression for multivariable analysis.
Positive associations with cognition were found with participation in civic activities at the age of 33 and 50, frequent participation in sporting activities at age 42, highest achieved qualification, and being female. On the other hand, having a manually working father at age of 11 and having at least 2 family members to whom respondents could turn for advice at the age of 33 were negatively associated with cognitive outcomes.
2) Fertility history and cognition in later life
Using data from the English Longitudinal Survey of Ageing (ELSA), Dr Sanna Read and Professor Emily Grundy from the London School of Economics and Political Science looked at the level and changes in cognition (memory and word fluency) over an 8-year period among women and men aged 50 or more at the start of the study. They assessed how cognition was associated with number of children (0, 1, 2, 3 or 4 children), early parenthood (before age 20 for women and 23 for men) and late parenthood (after age 35 for women and 39 for men). Previous work on parenthood and cognition has mainly focused on women only and a narrow range of physiological effects, especially hormonal factors. The novelty in this study was to include both men and women and widen the scope to consider the role of socio-economic position, health and social factors in the association. Findings reveal that family building history has both negative and positive effects on cognition in later life. Large family size and early parenthood were associated with poorer cognitive functioning in both men and women, following a similar pattern as found previously for other health outcomes. Poorer cognitive functioning in these cases resulted from negative pathways between early parenting, larger family size and poorer socioeconomic position, which further affect health and social engagement in later life. The benefits of parenting on cognition were also evident; parents had higher cognitive functioning than childless men and women. Moreover, those women who experienced their last birth after turning 35 also exhibited higher cognitive functioning in later life. Although some of these benefits were due to better socioeconomic position, health and social engagement, these background factors did not fully explain why parenthood and cognition was positively associated.
3) Technology-based tools and services for people with dementia and carers
The project collaborated with the Department of Health and Social Care's Policy Innovation Research Unit to identify how technologies fit within the dementia care pathway, by conducting a scoping review of digital technology, robotics and other technology (as relevant) in the care and support of people with dementia and/or their unpaid family and other carers, and supplementing this with experiential information gathered from people with dementia and carers, and interviews with experts in the field. The research found that the largest number of technologies identified aim to enhance the safety and security of people with dementia living in the community. These devices are often passive monitors, such as smoke detectors. Other safety interventions, such as panic buttons, require active intervention. The second largest number of interventions aims to enhance people's memory and includes global positioning systems devices and voice prompts. These technologies mostly target people in the early stages of dementia. A third group focusing on treatment and care delivery emerged from the literature. These interventions focus on technology-aided reminiscence or therapeutic aspects of care for people with dementia and their carers. While the review found a range of technologies available for people with dementia and carers there is very little evidence of widespread practical application. Instead, it appears that stakeholders frequently rely on everyday technologies re-purposed to meet their needs.
4) Microsimulation epidemiological model
The MODEM project has developed a new dynamic micro-simulation model called the Population, Ageing and Care Simulation (PACSim). Its aim is to model (a) the health and associated care needs of the English population over the coming decades; and (b) the impact of interventions for risk factor reduction, disease prevention and treatments that slow down progression to disease and disability.
The model builds on two similar ones: firstly a previous epidemiological macro-simulation model, SIMPOP, which linked multiple diseases to disability to project future disability burden in people aged 65 years and over; and secondly DynoptaSim, an Australian dynamic micro-simulation model of the health and functional status of the Australian population aged 45 years and over.
The base population for PACSim is individuals aged 35 years and over from three longitudinal studies: the new CFAS cohort; the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA); and Understanding Society (waves 1 and 2). Baseline characteristics generated on individuals include: sociodemographic (age, sex, living arrangements/marital status, education, occupation, retirement); lifestyle behaviours (smoking, physical activity, BMI, social engagement); diseases/geriatric conditions (dementia/cognitive impairment, CHD, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, respiratory disease, hearing impairment, visual impairment). The outcome variable is disability as measured by the interval of need scale, and categorising people on the basis of activities of daily living and cognitive function on the intensity of care required. The technical report gives further detail about the construction of PACSim.
We found that between 2015 and 2035 in England, both the prevalence of, and numbers with, dependency will fall for the young-old (65-74 years) whilst for very old adults (=85 years) numbers with low dependency will increase by 148% and with high dependency (24-hr care) will almost double (increase of 91.8%) though prevalence will change little. For men aged 65 there will be a compression of dependency as gains in years independent (4.1 years) exceed gains in life expectancy (3.5 years). In contrast for women there will be an expansion of mainly low dependency. In 2015 just over half (58%) of older adults with dementia and substantial (medium or high) dependency will have at least two other concurrent conditions whilst by 2035 this proportion will rise to 81%. Multi-morbidity prevalence and years spent with multi-morbidity are estimated to increase over the same period, but the largest increases will be seen in 4+ diseases where the proportion will rise from 9.8% to 17%, and most of the life expectancy gains will be in years spent with 4+ diseases.
Findings from this part of the project were published in a MODEM technical report, in Age and Ageing in January 2018, and in Lancet Public Health in August 2018. The findings received considerable media coverage.
5) Macrosimulation model
Outputs from the microsimulation model on intensity of care by age, gender and year in the presence of dementia form inputs to the MODEM macrosimulation model. Scenarios for risk-factor reduction and treatment strategies will be informed by reviews on costs, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions to prevent or delay dementia onset, being undertaken in other parts of the project (e.g. exercise, social engagement). Outputs include life expectancies with different care needs (to feed into the care pathways model developed by other members of the study) and years spent with and without individual diseases and multimorbid to allow exploration of the likelihood of compression or expansion of morbidity/disability given different health scenarios.
Development of our macrosimulation model has taken place with data drawn from the MODEM PACSIM model, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) 2014-based population projections, the Cognitive Function and Ageing Study (CFASII), NHS Digital data from local authorities, MODEM cohort study data and PSSRU Unit Costs of Health & Social Care. We made projections of the demand for unpaid care, social care and healthcare for the older population with dementia and of the associated costs of care from 2015 to 2040. We conducted regression analyses to identify the key drivers of receipt of unpaid care and of care services. Our projections take account of expected changes in the prevalence of dementia from the PACSim model, changes in the number of older people by age and gender published by the ONS and expected real rises in wages reported by the O?ce for Budget Responsibility (OBR). The total number of older people living with dementia in England is projected to increase from 650,000 in 2015 to 1,350,000 in 2040. The total costs of dementia are projected to increase from £23.0 billion in 2015 to £80.1 billion in 2040.
6) Care pathways
We have mapped the full dementia care pathway in England to understand access to services and interventions. By the dementia care pathway, we mean the stages of care that people living with dementia and carers may experience, from the very first symptoms or concerns, to the end of life, considering health, social care and community services. We have done this through a wide consultation that enabled us to map graphically the sequence of services that are potentially available, and then proceeded to look for data on the numbers of people living with dementia and carers that are able to access those services in practice. This process has highlighted that, while there is a wide variety of services available in England, the system is very fragmented and complex, suggesting that, without good care coordination, it is not easy for people living with dementia and their carers to access services. It is also evident that there is a relatively well-established health care pathway and data on what happens up to the point of diagnosis, but, in contrast, there is very little information to enable the monitoring of how well the current dementia care services are able to provide adequate care, treatment and support beyond diagnosis.
7) Cohort analyses
Over 300 dyads of people with dementia and their carers were recruited onto our cohort study, with at least 100 each with mild, moderate and severe dementia. We were successful in recruiting 307 people living with dementia and their primary carer. Cross-sectional data analysis revealed: proxy-report, but not self-report, quality of life of the person with dementia is associated with dementia severity; carer quality of life is not a?ected by dementia severity, even after controlling for key confounding variables; factors such as the quality of life of the person with dementia and carer burden, are significantly associated with carer quality of life. 250 participants were available to participate at the 12-month follow-up. Longitudinal data analysis revealed: between testing, approximately 45% of participants experienced at least one of the following; a) hospital admission, b) moving into residential care, c) commenced formal home care, d) had a fall in quality of life (0.10 decline in EQ5D); having severe dementia is associated with poorer generic quality of life at follow-up when compared to mild severity participants. This was not found in the disease-specific quality of life outcome; and disease-specific quality of life at follow-up is significantly associated with greater behavioural disturbance.
8) Evidence on advance care planning
The MODEM study has gathered new evidence on the lives of people with dementia and their carers, and interventions that could delay onset, slow deterioration in cognition, functioning or behaviour, or reduce their adverse impacts on wellbeing, and on costs.
A paper focusing on the evidence on the effectiveness of advance care planning (ACP) in improving end of life outcomes for people with dementia and their carers was published in January 2018 in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management.
Systematic searches of academic databases (CINAHL Plus with full text, PsycINFO, SocINDEX with full text, and PubMed) were conducted to identify research studies, published between January 2000-January 2017 and involving statistical methods, in which ACP is an intervention or independent variable, and in which end-of-life outcomes for people with dementia and/or their carers are reported. A total of 18 relevant studies were identified. Most found ACP to be associated with some improved end-of-life outcomes. Studies were predominantly, but not exclusively, from the U.S. and care home-based. The type of ACP and outcome measures varied. Quality was assessed using National Institute of Health and Care Excellence quality appraisal checklists. Over half of the studies were of moderate to high quality. Three were randomized controlled trials, two of which were low quality.
Findings suggest that there is a need for more high-quality outcome studies, particularly using randomized designs to control for confounding. These need to be underpinned by sufficient development work and process evaluation to clarify the appropriateness of outcome measures, explore implementation issues and identify "active elements."
9) Dementia Evidence Toolkit
Additional funding was provided by the ESRC to support the project to build on our systematic mapping of the literature on effectiveness of interventions in dementia to develop an evidence library. The Dementia Evidence Toolkit was launched in July 2016 and is a web-based resource consisting of: a searchable coded bibliographic database of 3000 empirical papers and 700 systematic reviews on interventions for the treatment, care and support of people with dementia and carers, comprising the period between 2009 and June 2015; and plain language summaries of the evidence on the effectiveness (and cost-effectiveness) of key care and treatment interventions. The aim of the Toolkit is to provide easy access to scientific evidence of dementia care and treatment and to provide clear and rigorous information to people living with dementia, family and other unpaid carers, staff working in the health and social care sectors, local and strategic decision-makers and researchers. The toolkit has evaluated the evidence base for typical interventions in use in the UK: Advance Care Planning, STAR, Maintenance Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, Cognitive Stimulation Therapy, Music Therapy and START: Strategies for Relatives. These interventions were found to be cost-effective, and further detailed information is available on the Toolkit website.
10) Carer gender and age
As part of a MODEM studentship, we investigated if and how well-being and quality of life of carers of people living with dementia are a?ected by di?erences associated with carer gender and age. We used a literature review to investigate how well-being and quality of life of carers of people living with dementia have been measured, and qualitative research based on interviews with family carers to investigate aspects that carers reported as important to their well-being. Results from the quantitative analysis cautiously suggested that women might experience worse outcomes than men with respect to health-related quality of life, happiness and life satisfaction. Carer age influenced mental health outcomes in two of the studies, but results were not conclusive. Results from the final analysis showed that women spent more time than men on personal care and instrumental activities of daily living tasks. No statistically significant di?erence was found for carer gender regarding time spent on supervision or total time spent caring. Similarly, carer age was not found to significantly a?ect the time carers spent on any of the task groups investigated. This suggests that carer age does not play a significant role in determining the intensity of care provided.
Exploitation Route The MODEM study formed the basis of two substantial new studies.
One is funded by RCUK's Global Challenges Research Fund. This is STRiDE: Strengthening responses to dementia in developing countries (ES/P010938/1). The study started in October 2017 and runs for 51 months. The study is working with local partners and stakeholders in seven middle-income countries (Brazil, India, Indonesia, Jamaica, Kenya, Mexico and South Africa) to: (a) build capacity in generating and using research evidence/tools to support policies for improvement of dementia care, treatment and support; (b) build up research evidence on what works in dementia in low- and middle-income countries; (c) better understand impacts of dementia in various cultural, social and economic contexts to help countries develop appropriate responses; and (d) support development, financing, planning, implementation and evaluation of national dementia plans. One component of the study will attempt to develop the Dementia Evidence Toolkit into an international evidence database.
A second study which has built explicitly on MODEM has recently started, and involves most of the MODEM team in further collaboration. This is DETERMIND: DETERMinants of quality of life, care and costs, and consequences of INequalities in people with Dementia and their family carers (ES/S010351/1). The study will look at inequalities in dementia care and outcomes and what we can do to improve them. It will have a unique focus on decision-making, how care is funded, people with dementia of black Caribbean and South Asian heritage, the older LGBTQ+ population, and the benefits and harms of earlier and later diagnosis of dementia. DETERMIND will focus on identifying and understanding factors that generate unequal access and experiences, leading to inequalities in care and inequities in outcome in the three years following diagnosis, and will recruit a large (n=900) cohort of people newly diagnosed with dementia and their carers and follow them closely for three years to do this.
Further funding opportunities are also being explored to build on other components of the MODEM study.
Members of the team are part of key stakeholder groups and initiatives which are utilising MODEM findings. Martin Knapp, Sube Banerjee and Adelina Comas-Herrera were part of a taskforce established by the Alzheimer's Society of leading UK clinicians and researchers in dementia, UK funders of dementia research, people with dementia, and carer representatives to develop, using iterative consensus methodology, goals and recommendations to advance dementia research by 2025. Emerging findings from the MODEM study fed into this taskforce which published its recommendations in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry in February 2018. Adelina Comas-Herrera is a member of the Guideline Development Group for the World Health Organization's Risk reduction guidelines for cognitive decline and dementia.

Description A summary report of our findings (prepared for a launch event in November 2018, attended by 120 people) is available on our website, and we are currently finalising a policy report alongside an animated video targeted at people living with dementia and carers. We will also produce further non-academic outputs from the project when findings from all elements of the project have been published (over the next few months). The MODEM Dementia Evidence Toolkit has generated impact: at the launch event (July 2016), Jeremy Hughes CEO of the Alzheimer's Society said it 'puts all that evidence together in an accessible and usable way in the public domain'. In just its first four months, the Toolkit had 7,029 visits and 9,155 searches from researchers, carers, social workers, commissioners, GPs, and people with dementia - demonstrating the breadth of reach for the resource. Project team members continue to present findings at conferences and seminars, as well as sharing them as part of policy discussions. We have a number of stakeholders engaging with us to utilise the findings, including the Alzheimer's Society and the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC). Three invited presentations have already been given to DHSC officials, and DHSC have told us that they plan to draw on the findings for the Government's next Spending Review. In early March we were asked for evidence from MODEM (on potential savings from better prevention efforts) to feed into ongoing DHSC work to prepare the Green Paper on social care. MODEM findings on projections of future needs from our microsimulation modelling (led by Jagger and Kingston) received significant media attention when published in two papers in 2018. The first of these papers was awarded the Dhole-Eddlestone Memorial Prize for best paper in Age and Ageing in 2018. DHSC is commissioning further work using this model within one of its new Policy Research Units, to address a range of policy-related questions regarding the older population. This new follow-on work is about to start. Estimates generated as part of the MODEM, building on data collected within the CFAS study, were cited in the NHS Long Term Plan, published in January 2019. Figures from our projections of prevalence and cost were quoted in a speech by the Secretary of State in a major speech on dementia in December 2018.

Title Population, Ageing and Care Simulation (PACSim) 
Description The MODEM project has developed a new dynamic micro-simulation model called the Population, Ageing and Care Simulation (PACSim). Its aim is to model (a) the health and associated care needs of the English population over the coming decades; and (b) the impact of interventions for risk factor reduction, disease prevention and treatments that slow down progression to disease and disability. The model builds on two similar ones: firstly a previous epidemiological macro-simulation model, SIMPOP, which linked multiple diseases to disability to project future disability burden in people aged 65 years and over; and secondly DynoptaSim, an Australian dynamic micro-simulation model of the health and functional status of the Australian population aged 45 years and over. The base population for PACSim is individuals aged 35 years and over from three longitudinal studies: the new CFAS cohort; the English Longitudinal Study of Ageing (ELSA); and Understanding Society (waves 1 and 2). Baseline characteristics generated on individuals include: sociodemographic (age, sex, living arrangements/marital status, education, occupation, retirement); lifestyle behaviours (smoking, physical activity, BMI, social engagement); diseases/geriatric conditions (dementia/cognitive impairment, CHD, stroke, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis, cancer, respiratory disease, hearing impairment, visual impairment). The outcome variable is disability as measured by the interval of need scale, and categorising people on the basis of activities of daily living and cognitive function on the intensity of care required. The technical report gives further detail about the construction of PACSim.

Impact The PACSim tool is being used within the MODEM study. Outputs on intensity of care by age, gender and year in the presence of dementia will form inputs to the MODEM macro-simulation model. Scenarios for risk factor reduction and treatment strategies will be informed by reviews on costs, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of interventions to prevent or delay dementia onset, being undertaken in other parts of the project (e.g. exercise, social engagement). Outputs will also include life expectancies with different care needs (to feed into the care pathways model in WP10) and years spent with and without individual diseases and multimorbid to allow exploration of the likelihood of compression or expansion of morbidity/disability given different health scenarios.

Results and Impact This was a workshop organised by the World Health Organisation to "support the implementation of the WHO global action plan on the public health response to dementia 2017-2025". During this workshop I acted as an external expert, facilitating discussions of ways forward in dementia policy development with groups of policy-makers and NGO representatives from various countries. The discussion with the representative of the ministry of health of India was particularly encouraging as, by considering the option of adding dementia to existing National Plans on NCDs and mental health rather than having to develop a whole new dementia plan, he could see a potential avenue to contribute to the development of national policy in dementia that he had not considered before. India is one of the countries in the STRiDE project and we plan to continue that dialogue as part of the project's work.

Results and Impact Alzheimer's Society facilitated a taskforce of leading UK clinicians and researchers in dementia, UK funders of dementia research, people with dementia, and carer representatives to develop, using iterative consensus methodology, goals and recommendations to advance dementia research. We developed recommendations to advance research on prevention, diagnosis, intervention, and care in dementia, focusing on real-world outcomes. The roadmap is aimed at researchers who can respond through development of their own research proposals, and for funders and research policy stakeholders who can influence the availability and direction of research funding and the research environment, including strengthening and developing the United Kingdom's skill base with new capacity building. The launch of the roadmap was accompanied by an article in the Guardian and one on the Huffington post and a social media campaign.
