Computer-Based Functional Skills Assessment and Training Program To Improve Daily Functioning in Older Adults

Start: August 1, 2021
End: May 31, 2023
Enrollment: 180

What Is This Study About?

This study will evaluate whether a computer-based functional skills assessment and training (CFSAT) program can improve the ability of older adults with or without mild cognitive impairment (MCI) to complete everyday tasks important for independent living, such as online banking and prescription refills using a phone menu. In the first phase, participants with normal cognition and MCI will attend one two-hour session to provide information about the programs usability. In the second phase, participants with MCI will be randomly assigned to complete either 24 hours of the CFSAT training over 12 weeks or a combination of three other functional training programs over three weeks before completing nine weeks of the CFSAT program. All participants with normal cognition will complete 24 hours of the CFSAT training over 12 weeks. Researchers will use surveys and digital assessments to track changes in participants ability to complete the training tasks at the start and end of the training and after three months.
