The MODEM Dementia Evidence Toolkit is a public resource that gives access, via a website, to scientific evidence gathered as part of a systematic mapping of the literature on evaluations of interventions for treatment, care and support of people with dementia and carers. The Toolkit has two components: a bibliographic database and plain English evidence summaries on what works in dementia care. The bibliographic database: The searchable database comprises over 3,000 empirical journal articles and 700 systematic reviews, obtained by searching key bibliographic databases (Medline, Psychinfo, CINAHL, Social Care Online and IBSS) for articles published from 2009 to June 2015. The articles were screened and coded according to type of dementia, care setting, type of outcomes, type of intervention and country. Evidence summaries: The evidence summaries are produced using systematic methods. They aim to offer rigorous, yet accessible, digests of the evidence on effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of key dementia interventions.
