Sharing the diagnosis : A survey of memory disorders clinics, their policies on informing people with dementia and their families, and the support they offer.
In order to understand better how much information is shared with people who are diagnosed with dementia, a questionnaire was sent to 20 memory disorders clinics in England, Scotland and Eire.
We asked if they had a policy for sharing the diagnosis, how they did this and what terminology was used, and what support services were available afterwards.
Our findings are reported.
