Subjective Cognitive Decline Clinical Trial
Preventing Cognitive and Functional Decline Among Seniors at Risk: A Community-Based Randomized Trial
This study evaluates the efficacy of Real-World Strategy Training (RWST) compared to a psycho-education workshop for improving everyday life performance in older adults with subjective cognitive decline (SCD). Participants will be randomly assigned to receive one of these approaches.
Evidence suggests that 25-50% of community-dwelling older adults report SCD and that these
individuals have an elevated risk for developing Mild Cognitive Impairment and/or dementia.
Many of these individuals report difficulties with complex activities of daily living.
RWST aims to reduce these difficulties in everyday life by providing a meta-cognitive training approach that compensates for age-related executive changes. The approach is provided within the context of individually identified everyday-life difficulties.
The psycho-education approach is a Brain-Health Workshop supplemented by intellectually stimulating activities such as doing Sudoku and/or word searches. This approach provides information people may use to inform health behaviour changes. ;
