COUNTRY VIGNETTES | International

Introduction - International

As part of the STRiDE project, we developed five case vignettes to explore access to diagnosis, care and support for people living with dementia and their families. These case vignettes provide useful insights into how people living with dementia and their family carers can access diagnosis, care and support, and can navigate the systems in place; they also highlight what barriers people are likely to encounter. Each of the vignettes portrays different characteristics and living situations. A detailed overview of the approach taken can be found here. In addition to the five case vignettes (01-05) that the STRiDE teams across the seven countries applied to their country-specific context, the teams created additional case vignettes that represent scenarios particularly relevant to their context. Below we outline, based on available evidence and expert advice, the likely access (or not) to diagnosis, care and support in each country for the illustrated cases.
