Milestone 8.A

Convene an advisory meeting to delineate an interdisciplinary research agenda focused on:

  • advancing non-pharmacological interventions for the cognitive and behavioral symptoms of AD and AD-related dementias by non- pharmacological treatments,
  • informing the design of therapeutic approaches combining pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments and
  • identification of best practices for implementation of non-pharmacological interventions.
  • develop culturally sensitive guidelines for social and behavioral interventions for AD and ADRD prevention to inform study design, cohort selection, intervention delivery and dosing, and outcomes assessments.
  • incentivize efforts to increase harmonization of protocols across studies to enhance research rigor and reproducibility.

Success Criteria

  • Convene an advisory meeting that brings together social/behavioral research scientists with clinical trial and data science experts and patient advocates from diverse communities to formulate culturally sensitive guidelines for social and behavioral interventions for AD /ADRD prevention needed for study design, cohort selection, intervention delivery and dosing, and establishing meaningful outcomes.

  • Recommendations developed for advancing non-pharmacological interventions for AD and ADRD treatment and prevention to enable successful implementation of effective non-pharmacological interventions.

  • Provide support for the harmonization of protocols across social and behavioral intervention trials.
