COM-IC – collaborative development of core outcome measures for dementia care

Project background

The Core Outcome Measures for Improving Care (COM-IC) project aims to identify a suite of outcome measures that are aligned with stakeholder goals; and develop guidelines for implementation that ensure Australia’s efforts to improve the lives of people living with dementia are unequivocally realised.

The COM-IC Project will use a participatory co-design strategy to incorporate practical knowledge, experience and preferences of all stakeholders as inputs in each step of the process. The participatory co-design framework will ensure the suite of core outcomes identified and recommended to evaluate dementia interventions and care delivery model are important, relevant, authentic and practical for each stakeholder group.
