We welcome people over the age of 50 with memory or cognitive difficulties to participate in this study. This study is a two-arm randomised trial with a 50:50 chance of being allocated to the CogNet program (online psychoeducation and cognitive training program), or a waitlist control group (treatment as usual).
The CogNet program is delivered in 12 modules, completed over 6-weeks. Each module includes education and practical instruction on a variety of strategies targeting cognition and medical or lifestyle factors known to affect cognition and wellbeing (e.g. mood, sleep quality, etc.). Those randomised to the waitlist control group will be offered the CogNet program after completion of the 6-week control period.
At baseline, all participants will complete an online assessment including self-report questionnaires assessing medical and psychiatric history, and a web-based cognitive assessment which will measure various aspects of your memory and thinking skills. Within two weeks of completing the last module (i.e. after finishing the full 6-week program), you will be asked to complete the same assessments as at baseline, as well as some questionnaires asking about your satisfaction with the CogNet program and the usability of the online intervention.
You may be eligible to participate in this study if the following applies:
