|Summary || |
- The START coping programme helps to reduce depression and anxiety in family carers of a person living with dementia without increasing costs.
- The programme is cost-effective and offers value for money for the health and social care system.
- Longer-term follow-up evidence is needed to see if the START coping programme delays the admission of people living with dementia to care homes, given encouraging short-term findings.
