AAIC 2019

This poster was presented at the AAIC 2019 in Los Angeles by Cambridge Cognition (or CANTAB). It outlines interim analysis of the Alzheimer's disease citizen science platform developed by the MOPEAD Project (or Run 1). This patient engagement model invited members of the general public in five European countries to take an online memory test with the possibility of receiving further health assessment or even a diagnosis in exchange for their data to be used as part of the study.

Alzheimer's & Dementia, The Journal of the Alzheimer's Association

In most, if not all health systems, dementia is underdiagnosed, and when diagnosis occurs, it is typically at a relatively late stage in the disease process despite mounting evidence showing that a timely diagnosis would result in numerous benefits for patients, families, and society. Moving toward earlier diagnoses in Alzheimer's disease (AD) requires a conscientious and collective effort to implement a global strategy addressing the multiple causes hindering patient engagement at different levels of society. This article describes the design of the Models of Patient Engagement for Alzheimer's Disease project, an ongoing EU-funded public-private multinational initiative that will compare four innovative patient engagement strategies across five European countries regarding their ability to identify individuals with prodromal AD and mild AD dementia, which are “hidden” in their communities and traditionally not found in the typical memory clinic setting. The strategies include an online AD citizen science platform, an open house initiative at the memory clinics, and patient engagement at primary care and diabetologist clinics.
