Maintaining Autonomy as we Age: Investigating the Application of a Strategy Training Approach for Ameliorating the Effects of Age-related Executive Dysfunction - Part II

Healthy older adults with self-reported cognitive difficulties who receive strategy training will demonstrate greater performance benefits on measures of real-world activities, relative to those receiving a control intervention, immediately post treatment and at follow-up.

Phase 2
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Outcomes Assessor)
Aged
Behavioral: Real world strategy approach
The key features of the protocol are: i. Participants are actively engaged in selecting their treatment goals. The research clinician will work with the participants to identify five specific, measurable real-world goals using a standardized semi-structured interview, the Canadian Occupational Performance Measure. Three of these will be training goals, two will not be trained but evaluated post-intervention for evidence of generalization and transfer to non-trained tasks; ii. A global problem solving approach is used (Goal- Plan- Do- Check). Participants are guided by the trainer to apply this strategy to their goals.
