SCD Well results due in 2019
One of the Study’s two clinical trials – SCD Well – has now been successfully completed and the results are expected to be released next year.
The trial, led by Dr Natalie Marchant of University College London (UCL), is investigating the impact of mental training techniques on the health and well-being of patients with subjective cognitive decline (SCD) recruited from memory clinics in France, Germany, Spain and the UK.
Researchers will now analyse the results in order to assess the effects of short-term interventions, such as taking part in a health education or mindfulness programme, on 147 patients. Behavioural measures have been monitored to see how much of a difference can be made to participants’ well-being due to the intervention.
