Italian National Dementia Plan

The Italian National Dementia Plan was defined in October 2014 by the Italian Ministry of Health in close cooperation with the regions, the National Institute of Health, and the three major national associations of patients and carers.

The main purpose of this strategy was to provide definitive indications for promoting and improving interventions in the field of dementia. These indications aimed at being not limited to specialist and therapeutic actions, but particularly focused on the support of patients and families throughout the pathways of care.

Four main objectives are indicated:
1) promoting health - and social-care interventions and policies;
2) creating/strengthening the integrated network of services for dementia based on an integrated approach;
3) implementing strategies for promoting appropriateness and quality of care;
4) improving the quality of life of people with dementia and their families by supporting their empowerment and reducing the stigma.
