Project Description

The project aims to determine whether training in and use of a brief cognitive impairment screening tool and training in practice management guidelines can improve diagnostic rates, management techniques and patient outcomes compared with GPs who are not so trained and their patients who undergo usual care. It will also evaluate the benefits of screening as opposed to case finding for early dementia in general practice.
