Toward an evidence-based implementation model and checklist for personalized dementia care in the community

The aim was to develop an evidence-based model that focuses specifically on factors that enable the provision of personalized care to facilitate and promote the implementation of community-based personalized dementia care interventions. The model is based on our previous research and additional literature.

The theoretical model of adaptive implementation was used as a framework to structure our model. Facilitators and barriers considered relevant for personalized care were extracted from our studies and additional literature, and were synthesized into the new evidence-based implementation model and checklist for personalized dementia care in the community.

Extraction of data led to a composition of an evidence-based model for the implementation of personalized psychosocial care interventions that incorporates core components of personalized care. The model addresses several issues, e.g. how personalized care interventions should be offered and to whom; whether these are able to adapt to personal characteristics and needs of clients and informal caregivers; and whether both organizational management and staff that provide the intervention support personalized care and are able to focus on providing individualized care.

Our model provides a checklist for researchers, professional caregivers, and policy-makers who wish to develop, evaluate, or implement personalized care interventions.
