Presenter: Patricia Belchior
In recent years, there has been a widespread promotion on the use of computer/video games to improve cognitive skills in older adults with and without cognitive impairment, with new “brain training” or “brain games” growing every day. The claim that such games can improve various aspects of someone’s life, including the potential to delay cognitive decline, has enticed both the public and clinicians to start using this type of approach. For clinicians to use this in their area of practice, it is important to understand the real benefits of such interventions. In this webinar, we will discuss the current evidence on this type of intervention so clinicians can make informed decisions when choosing this approach in their daily clinical practices.
After taking part in this webinar, participants will:
Understand the current evidence concerning the impact of computer-based cognitive training on everyday function.
Support clinicians in making informed decisions when choosing this type of intervention in their daily practices.
Level: Intermediate (3-5 years of experience in this specific practice of area)
