Welcome

Welcome to the Cochrane Dementia and Cognitive Improvement Group, part of Cochrane’s Mental Health and Neuroscience Network.

Our aim is to provide the highest quality evidence about the care and medical treatment of people with dementia, delirium and other cognitive disorders, and about the diagnosis and prevention of these disorders. We do this by producing systematic reviews addressing questions which are important to patients, their families, and healthcare professionals from all disciplines. You can read more about our scope and our work here.

We welcome contact from anyone who would like to help us to identify important questions, produce or publicise our reviews, or just generally comment on our work.
