On Friday, June 19 we held the first webinar in our Scholarship Series:
Do we need more RCTs in dementia caregiving? An analysis of 595 unique studies. A discussion with Dr. Richard Schulz and expert panel.
The discussion focused 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.
