Reducing Disabilities in Alzheimer's Disease (RDAD) Translation in Area Agencies on Aging (AAAs) (RDAD)

This study is ongoing, but not recruiting participants.
Sponsor:
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Linda Teri, University of Washington
ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT01708304
First received: October 9, 2012
Last updated: May 29, 2017
Last verified: May 2017
  Purpose
The University of Washington's Northwest Research Group on Aging is partnering with Area Agencies on Aging (AAA) in Washington and Oregon to complete this translational investigation of RDAD (Reducing Disabilities in Alzheimer's Disease). RDAD is an evidence-based program with demonstrated efficacy in helping older adults with dementia maintain physical function and remain physically and mentally healthy. This study asks two questions: 1) Can AAA partners successfully translate and implement RDAD, and 2) Is AAA implementation of RDAD effective in producing desired outcomes among agencies, providers, and older adults with dementia and their family members. This study is being conducted in Washington and Oregon states.

Condition Intervention
Alzheimer's Disease Dementia Memory Impairment Cognitive Impairment Behavioral: RDAD

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: No masking
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: From Evidence-Base to Practice: Implementing RDAD in AAA Community-Based Services

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Minutes of exercise per week [ Time Frame: Change from baseline in number of minutes of exercise each week during treatment phase of study, weeks 7-12 ]
    Caregivers will track the number of minutes per week the care recipients engage in exercise recommended by the coach.

  • Restricted Activity Days [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Restricted Activity Days measures how much the participant cut down his/her usual activities in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness and how many days the participant stayed in bed in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness.

  • Restricted Activity Days [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Pre-Treatment (6 weeks) ]
    Restricted Activity Days measures how much the participant cut down his/her usual activities in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness and how many days the participant stayed in bed in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness.

  • Restricted Activity Days [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post- Treatment 1 (13 weeks) ]
    Restricted Activity Days measures how much the participant cut down his/her usual activities in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness and how many days the participant stayed in bed in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness.

  • Restricted Activity Days [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post-Treatment 2 (30 weeks) ]
    Restricted Activity Days measures how much the participant cut down his/her usual activities in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness and how many days the participant stayed in bed in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness.

  • Restricted Days of Activity [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 13 Month Follow-Up ]
    Restricted Activity Days measures how much the participant cut down his/her usual activities in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness and how many days the participant stayed in bed in the previous two weeks because of injury or illness.

  • Independence/Residential Status [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 13 Month Follow-Up ]
    All participants will be in independent living situations at baseline. Any move from independent living to a care facility will be documented throughout the 13 month study.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Revised Memory and Behavior Problem Checklist (RMBPC) [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    Checklist rates 24 care recipient behaviors for frequency of occurrence and caregiver reaction.

  • Revised Memory and Behavior Problem Checklist (RMBPC) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Pre-Treatment (6 weeks) ]
    Checklist rates 24 care recipient behaviors for frequency of occurrence and caregiver reaction.

  • Revised Memory and Behavior Problem Checklist (RMBPC) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post-Treatment 1 (13 weeks) ]
    Checklist rates 24 care recipient behaviors for frequency of occurrence and caregiver reaction.

  • Revised Memory and Behavior Problem Checklist (RMBPC) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to Post-Treatment 2 (30 weeks) ]
    Checklist rates 24 care recipient behaviors for frequency of occurrence and caregiver reaction.

  • Revised Memory and Behavior Problem Checklist (RMBPC) [ Time Frame: Change from Baseline to 13 Month Follow-Up ]
    Checklist rates 24 care recipient behaviors for frequency of occurrence and caregiver reaction.

  • Quality of Life-AD [ Time Frame: Baseline ]
    This 13-item measure is specifically designed for individuals with dementia and focuses on quality of life domains identified as important for cognitively impaired older adults.
