In 2018, NIA embarked on a collaboration with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) and the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) to assess care and caregiving interventions for people with dementia (PWD) and their caregivers. For this study, we asked AHRQ to consider the complexities and multifaceted nature of dementia care and caregiving.
A rigorous systematic review of effective care and caregiving interventions was developed by the Minnesota Evidence-based Practice Center (EPC). From now through 04/21/2020, it is posted online and available for public comment. We encourage you to comment on the AHRQ evidence review and/or participate in the related NASEM workshop coming up on April 15. We need your help to better understand the best ways to help provide essential care and services for the millions of people living with dementia and their caregivers.
