On April 15 2020, the National Academies’ Committee on Care Interventions for Individuals with Dementia and Their Caregivers hosted a virtual public workshop. This workshop brought together key stakeholders and experts to provide input to the committee on a draft Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) systematic review that examines existing evidence on care interventions that support individuals with dementia and their caregivers. This AHRQ systematic review will form the predominant basis of the National Academies committee’s report on which care interventions can be considered ready for broad implementation and dissemination.
Invited presentations and discussions were designed to:
Provide a briefing on the draft AHRQ/EPC systematic review on care interventions for individuals with dementia and their caregivers
Collect reactions to the draft AHRQ/EPC systematic review from a wide range of stakeholders.
Explore the current state of evidence and discuss which care interventions for individuals with dementia and their caregivers may be considered ready for dissemination and implementation on a broad scale.
Discuss emerging data on care interventions that did not meet the evidentiary standard of the systematic review and data expected from studies underway that were not published in time for inclusion in the systematic review, and identify gaps and areas for future research.
