Using a Modelling Language to Describe the Quality of Life Goals of People Living with Dementia

Lockerbie, J. & Maiden, N. ORCID: 0000-0001-6233-8320 (2019). Using a Modelling Language to Describe the Quality of Life Goals of People Living with Dementia. Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 11483, pp. 162-176. doi: 10.1007/978-3-030-21290-2_11


Although now well established, our information systems engineering theories and methods are applied only rarely in disciplines beyond systems development. This paper reports the application of the i* goal modelling language to describe the types of and relationships between quality of life goals of people living with dementia. Published social care frameworks to manage and improve the lives of people with dementia were reviewed to synthesize, for the first time, a comprehensive conceptual model of the types of goals of people living with dementia. Although the quality of life goal model was developed in order to construct automated reasoning capabilities in a new digital toolset that people with dementia can use for life planning, the multi-stage modelling exercise provided valuable insights into quality of life and dementia care practices of both researchers and experienced practitioners in the field.
