Effect of psychosocial in-terventions for people with dementia - Protocol for a systematic review of systematic reviews - project description

Published Updated

On commission from the Norwegian Directorate of Health, we are conducting a systematic review of systematic reviews on the effect of psychosocial interventions for people with dementia.


Summary

In 2020, 101 000 persons with dementia were registered in Norway, and about 15% of persons above 70 years were affected. Common symptoms of dementia are impaired memory, difficulty concentrating, impaired orienteering ability, language difficulty and impaired function in everyday life. Dementia may also affect behaviour, psychological symptoms and personality traits.

On commission from the Norwegian Directorate of Health, we are conducting a systematic review of systematic reviews on the effect of psychosocial interventions for people with dementia. We conduct systematic searches for systematic reviews that have summarised the effect of psychosocial interventions intended to improve:

  • Cognitive function and quality of life
  • Behavioural and psychological symptoms

 

Relevant psychosocial interventions include cognitive therapy, cognitive stimulation therapy, cognitive training and rehabilitation, music therapy, sensory stimulation, animal assisted therapy, psycho education and person-focused models.

 

Identified references are evaluated by two persons independently. Titles and abstracts and then full text of relevant reviews are assessed according to our pre-defined inclusion criteria. We assess quality of included reviews using AMSTAR-2. We use the newest review of high quality and assess our confidence in the results using GRADE if it has not already been considered.
