  4. 4. OP MH Dementia Dataset OP MH Dementia Data Manual A Introduction Background The OP MH Dementia dataset is one of five datasets to support the implementation of the National Service Framework (NSF) for Older People and has been produced by a multi-professional working group (WG) during 2004. NSF Standard seven: mental health in old people, covers both dementia and depression (the subject of a separate, but related dataset). The aim of this standard is: “To promote good mental health in older people and to treat and support those older people with dementia and depression” Standard seven itself states “Older people who have mental health problems have access to integrated mental health services, provided by the NHS and councils to ensure effective diagnosis, treatment and support, for them and their carers. Mental health problems among older people exact a large social and economic toll on patients, their families and carers, and the statutory agencies. Under-detection of mental illness in older people is widespread, due to the nature of the symptoms and the fact that many older people live alone. Older people from black and minority ethnic communities need accessible and appropriate mental health services, which may not currently be readily accessible or fully appropriate - leading to distrust of agencies tasked with providing this support. Older people with mental health disabilities may also have difficulties obtaining appropriate mental health care. Although the focus tends to be on dementia and dementia, which are particularly common in older people, illnesses such as schizophrenia also occur. In developing these two datasets (dementia and depression), the working group (WG) recognised that mental health problems can affect people of any age, but that mental health problems tend to increase by age. The WG took the view that much of the data will be collected in a primary care and community setting, with GPs, practice and community nurses being prime examples of professional staff users of these datasets. That being said, it is recognised that many other professional staff will be involved at various stages, including for example: consultants, psychiatrists, pharmacists, therapists, etc. The data items were generated from a set of related business requirements that were derived mainly from the Older People NSF, the GMS contract and guidelines from the National Institute of Clinical Effectiveness (NICE). This was complemented with NHS performance indicators and specialist advice from members of the Mental Health WG itself. The business requirements were compiled to identify a concise set of particular national and local information imperatives to enable dementia dataset development, so that the monitoring of best practice in dementia care can be monitored. Purpose of this document The purpose of this document is to provide additional information in support of the dementia dataset. It functions as a reference guide for any health and care professional who comes into contact with older people. There are 39 major business requirements that will be met with the completion of the dementia dataset – each one linked back to expert opinion or policy (or similar) guidance. The business requirements are listed in table 1 (page 8) – the origins of each one being outlined more fully in the relevant section. Developing a list of business requirements was a precursor to the development of the dataset: the WG defined what questions need to be answered through the business requirements and subsequently listed data items to meet these requirements. A summary of good practice for the provision of integrated mental health services can be seen in the National Service Framework for Older People, Chapter 2: http://www.dh.gov.uk/PolicyAndGuidance/HealthAndSocialCareTopics/OlderPeoplesServices/fs/en Draft Version 0.2 March 2005 4
  5. 5. OP MH Dementia Dataset OP MH Dementia Data Manual Key Issues around Using the Dementia Dataset: Use of the dataset is intended to help improve the prevention, care and treatment of mental health problems in old ages through:  promoting good mental health  early recognition and management of mental health problems  access to specialist care The dataset is designed as a proactive approach for health and care professionals to begin entering dementia data from the date when a dementia assessment is carried out (as a routine for over 75 year olds), through assessment, diagnosis, referral, treatment, advice and subsequent support, building up a long-term record of individual dementia histories. The dementia dataset is intended to be used for all patients identified as having a dementia issue. The dataset covers all stages of the provision of integrated mental health services across the primary, secondary and residential care sectors. Each care provider will be responsible for collecting the required information relating to their contact with the patient, although demographic information will be supplemented by administrative data. The development and implementation of this dataset is a significant undertaking for all those involved in the management and delivery of mental health care. Finally, it should be noted that the first section of the dataset, Person Demographics, is common to all Older People (and other) Datasets. This section has been designed to be consistent in format with the NHS Data Dictionary, the National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT), NHS Information Authority standards and the Single Assessment Process (SAP). For those items subject to NHS Data Dictionary format, this is not defined in the dataset itself; rather, reference is made to the data dictionary as the source of information (which is only accessible online, because it is subject to continual update). Access to the NHS Data Dictionary is via: www.nhsia.nhs.uk/datastandards/pages/ddm/index.asp Draft Version 0.2 March 2005 5
  6. 6. OP MH Dementia Dataset OP MH Dementia Data Manual How to use this guide The data items are grouped into 12 sections: 1. Person Demographics* 2. Dementia Needs Assessment 3. Dementia Cognitive Assessment and Clinical Diagnosis 4. Referral to Specialist Services 5. Dementia - Specialist Treatments 6. Dementia Related Services 7. Dementia - Drug Treatment 8. Access to Other Services/Facilities 9. Access to Benefits 10. Care Package 11. Community Related/Epidemiological 12. Other * This section has been designed to be consistent in format with the NHS Data Dictionary, the National Programme for Information Technology (NPfIT), NHS Information Authority standards and the Single Assessment Process (SAP) for older people. For each of the other main sections there is a brief text introduction, followed by a table listing the relevant business requirements for that particular section, eg: No. Business Requirement Document of Origin Comment 2. Simple mental state tests should be used in primary care to assess for dementia Clinical guidelines Possible scores are mini- mental test, AMTS, 6CIT, other The ‘document of origin’ indicates where the main influence came from for the inclusion of the business requirement. The business requirement may not always be a straight quote and may differ slightly as the working group strove to balance the requirements of a number of documents and make the statements relevant to the dataset development. Where the business requirement was the result of expert opinion from the working group (or external reference group) it is indicated in this column. The ‘Comment’ column contains additional detail about the data that must be collected for each item. Each section then follows with a second table that lists the data items (from the dataset itself) for the section, eg: No. Data Item Description Purpose 2.1 Date of last routine health check The date of the last routine health check Patients with dementia should be diagnosed as early as possible in the disease trajectory. Routine health checks for older people should screen for dementia. Simple mental health test should be used in primary care The first column is the number of the data item, the second is the title of the data item, the third is a description of the item and the fourth explains the purpose of collecting this data item (the format in which the data should be collected is described in the following sections of this manual). Draft Version 0.2 March 2005 6
  7. 7. OP MH Dementia Dataset OP MH Dementia Data Manual If the data item is defined to conform to another existing dataset (eg, Single Assessment Summary dataset), this is also indicated in this column. The fourth (‘Purpose’) column also includes a reference to the related business requirement that it is designed to meet (in full or part). A final column contained in the actual dataset itself provides a description of the format the required data is to be collected in. These required formats are individually described in this manual immediately following each table. The appendices of this manual contain a list of the Read / ICD-10 codes related to relevant data items (a full list of the clinical codes for this dataset is planned to be included in the appendices of the final version of this data manual), plus a listing of the abbreviations and references used in the dementia dataset.

  9. 9. OP MH Dementia Dataset OP MH Dementia Data Manual B Guide to Data Collection 1 Person Demographics This section is common to all datasets and contains data items which provide information about the person. These data items are listed here together for reference, but it is not intended that they should necessarily all be collected at the same point in the pathway. Rather, some should be collected once, on initial contact with the person; others should be collected at each point in the during the course of treatment. Where this information is exchanged, the appropriate data item name should be used to identify the particular instance of the data. Some data items for a person will never change; others can and will change over time. As noted in the ‘How to Use this Guide’ section above, those data items already published in the NHS Dictionary contain only an associated reference to the data dictionary in the ‘Description’ column (rather than an actual description of the item, because it is which subject to continuous update). Likewise, this same reference is all that is contained in the ‘Codes and Classifications’ column for these same data items (rather than a definition of the format in which the data for these items is to be collected) for the same reason. Access to the NHS Data Dictionary can only be made online (rather than being able to obtain a paper or electronic disk-based copy), to ensure that professional users of the dataset are always provided with the latest up-to-date version.
