The Priority Setting for Healthcare Performance Measurement: Addressing Performance Measure Gaps for Dementia, including Alzheimer’s Disease Report presents a conceptual measurement framework and multistakeholder recommendations for future performance measurement development focusing on persons with dementia and their family caregivers. The framework includes five measurement domains and eleven subdomains and addresses the experiences of both the person with dementia and the family caregiver. This framework can be applied to Alzheimer’s disease, vascular dementia, frontotemporal dementia, dementia with Lewy bodies, and mixed dementia, as well as to subpopulations disproportionately affected by dementia, such as persons with early-onset dementia, members of racial and ethnic minorities, and persons with intellectual disabilities. The report identifies and describes six priority areas for future performance measure development and includes additional recommendations for measure development and for dementia research and policy more generally.
