Description:
The Feasibility Project, a joint partnership project with the Irish Hospice Foundation and led by The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, was conducted over a six-month period (October 2011–March 2012). An Expert Advisory Group (See Appendix 1 for membership) was convened to meet over the course of the project in order to draw on key clinical, academic, policy and service expertise and to evaluate the findings of the project, advise on strategy and policy and guide the effective direction of future developments in line with the acting principles. The Feasibility Project adopted a collaborative and consultative approach and included consultations and dialogue with the advisory group, specialists, frontline service providers and users, including family members, across a range of services and sectors to scope out and identify pertinent issues for shaping the development of dementia palliative care. (See Diagram 1 and further details in Appendix 2) This study adopted an exploratory approach in order to signpost a specific work programme as outlined in the recommendations.
