Quality standard for people with sight loss and dementia in an ophthalmology department 2015

Many patients who attend ophthalmology departments also have dementia. This quality standard has been developed to help ophthalmology departments provide high quality care for these patients. It addresses staff training, support to participate in decisions about care, the design of clinical areas, waiting times and appointment durations, provision of information, assessment of vision and referral for support.
