- The development and validation of the Prognostic Model for Advanced DEMentia (PRO-MADE) is to address the lack of prognostic models developed to predict mortality among advanced dementia patients in the acute care setting.
- PRO-MADE is both internally and externally validated to prognosticate for 1 year mortality in patients with advanced dementia.
- PRO-MADE can be integrated into usual clinical practice to encourage early palliative care for patients suffering with advanced dementia.
