Prototype finished, evaluation started

During the last months the “RHAPSODY Carer’s Guide for Young Onset dementia” was designed and built up in three languages: English, French and German. The prototype of this web-based, educational and skill-building intervention is currently being tested in a pilot study by family carers of people with YOD.

Major objectives of the pilot study are feasibility and acceptability of the program as well as the test of procedures and outcome measures for a larger trial. The results of the pilot study, including both quantitative data and qualitative feedback from participants, will be used to refine the e-learning program and to produce a final product that will be made available to organizations supporting YOD patients and carers across Europe.
