Notes
  • Alzheimer's disease is a common disorder in the elderly, and a cure is not currently available. This article summarises the intervention studies that have been done in Alzheimer's disease research and discusses assessment tools and outcome measures used in these studies. Current approaches are broadening their definition of positive outcome beyond improvement or maintenance of cognitive functioning. These new areas include slowing of disease progression, assessment of behavioural disturbances, quality of life and caregiver burden. Many new therapies are emerging for Alzheimer's disease, and appropriate use of assessment tools that evaluate the cognitive, behavioural and social aspects of this disease is required.
