Studies

TIP-CARD will be divided into three sub-studies.

TIP-CARD

STUDY 1: 

situation analysis 

  • What are stakeholders’ expectations, needs, & priorities about prevention, intervention, & care? 

  • How does the current situation compare? 

  • What information & resources are needed to close any gaps?

Study 2:

Cost of dementia

  • What are the monetarized costs of dementia in Chinese communities, 

- under different scenarios
- considering the impact on the person, the carer, & the economy? 

  • What are the implications for prioritization of resources?

Study 3:

Simulation Modelling

  • What are the projected future demands under different assumptions regarding:

- dementia prevalence 
- service models 
- care pathways?

 

​Study 1 Situational Analysis

  • Inductive iterative qualitative study

  • Involving Stakeholders Engagement

  • Baseline & 2-year follow-up

  • Participants

  • Stakeholders from different categories:

    • State & decision makers 

    • Service providers 

    • General public, including caregiver & people with dementia 

  • Procedures

    • Data, governance, service, & workforce mapping

    • SWOT in achieving the stakeholders’ aspirations

    • Theory of Change (TOC) analysis

    • Thematic sections: impact of family caregiving, awareness, & service use

    • Present findings from Studies 2 & 3 at follow-up

Compendium of Unit Costs &

Est. Costs of Dementia with Breakdowns

Study 2 Cost of Dementia

  • Quantitative data analysis

  • Leveraging on big data sets

    • Available data sets in Chinese (e.g., interRAITM)

    • + Primary data collected through survey (n=1,000)

  • Procedures

    • Data extraction & new data collection

    • Linkage of anonymized data on prevalence, sociodemographics, formal care service use, & family care costs with permission & ethics approval

  • Costs under different parameters 

    • Diagnosed vs. undiagnosed; Dementia severity 

    • Formal:informal care ratio

    • Opportunity cost, mean salary, replacement cost

    • Diff. treatment/intervention/care services

 

Study 3 Stimulation Modelling

Quantitative data analysis

  • Projections with careful assumptions

  • Procedures

    • Data gathering & linkage

    • Model building (cost of dementia data as baseline)

    • Selection of care pathways for scaling up

    • Simulation of the impact & outcomes of scaling up

  • Projected demands in terms of 

    • Financial support

    • Organizational support

    • Workforce support

  • Under different assumptions of 

    • Dementia prevalence 

    • Service models 

    • Care pathway
