Abstract/OtherAbstract:
BACKGROUND: This pilot clinical trial sought to estimate the feasibility and efficacy of two interventions aimed at improving memory performance in geriatric clinic patients with mild cognitive impairment.
METHODS: Fifteen participants were randomized to either a memory training group or a memory compensation group.
RESULTS: Recruitment rates were low, whereas adherence and retention rates were acceptable. The memory training group improved in self-reported memory abilities and satisfaction with memory. The memory compensation group improved on one objective memory test but showed no consistent changes on any other outcomes.
CONCLUSION: Effect size estimates will inform the design of larger clinical trials.
