This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To evaluate the effectiveness of case/care management approaches to home support for people with dementia from the point of view of the different people involved (patients, carers, and staff) compared with other forms of treatment including ‘treatment as usual’, standard community treatment and other non-case/care management interventions on delaying institutionalisation, improving quality of life and/or reducing the number of hospitalizations".
To study whether other potential mediating variables affect case/care management outcomes (e.g. key structural and organisational features of case/care management interventions and also the methodological characteristics of studies).
