AbstractBackground Integrated Care for dementia is an increasingly popular approach to supporting people with dementia, bringing services together to form a single cohesive provision for service users. This approach is still in its infancy but has the potential to improve the management of dementia, social care and to enhance the patient experience. Aims To understand views and experiences of integrated health and social care for dementia from the perspective of carers, families, healthcare professionals and researchers. Methods Crowdsourcing views and experiences from 'Bridging the Dementia Divide', a massive open online course at the University of Derby, provide a rich source of qualitative data from carers, families and healthcare professionals. We analysed 847 massive open online course discussion board posts using a Framework Analysis approach. Results Participants described how Integrated Care for dementia should be person-centred and holistic, involving a multidisciplinary team of health and social care practitioners, as well as the patient, the family and the wider community. The establishment of Integrated Care for dementia was viewed positively.
