Do we need more RCTs in dementia caregiving? An analysis of 595 unique studies
We are excited to announce our first offering in our new Scholarship Series for faculty, post-docs, students and all those interested in caregiving research.
Join us Friday, June 19, 2020 at 12:00 noon EST for our webinar: Do we need more RCTs in dementia caregiving? An analysis of 595 unique studies. A discussion with Dr. Richard Schulz and expert panel.
Click here to register. The discussion will focus on the recent Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) report, which is a systematic review that examines existing evidence on care interventions that support individuals with dementia and their caregivers.
You can click here to download a copy of the report. We realize that the report is lengthy – if you’d like to be able to engage fully in discussion, we recommended reviewing one chapter of the report ahead of time. Otherwise, feel free to still join, listen, and learn.
