Efficacy and feasibility of online cognitive training platforms for older adults with subjective cognitive complaints: A randomized controlled trial

With an aging population on the rise, the prevalence of cognitive decline is expected to increase substantially. Goal Management Training® (GMT) and the Memory and Aging Program® (MAP) are cognitive interventions that have been studied extensively and applied clinically to address these needs. Although previous research has demonstrated efficacy of the in-person versions of both MAP and GMT, significant barriers exist in the utilization of these programs. In light of these challenges, online versions of MAP and GMT have recently been developed. The current project aims to evaluate if online versions of MAP and GMT are successful at improving cognitive functioning, cognitive complaints, and the impact of cognitive concerns on daily functioning. Findings will be used for knowledge dissemination and will aid in the commercialization of these evidence-based online cognitive interventions.
