Article of the month – August 2019

The website committee has chosen the following article as publication of the month August: Christie et al. eHealth interventions to support caregivers of people with dementia may be proven effective, but are they implementation-ready? Internet Interventions 2019 [In press] Interdem members’ study investigated if effective “eHealth interventions” for caregivers of people with dementia were implemented after the research trials. Authors suggest that internet-based interventions have low levels of implementation readiness and often important information to assess this aspect of intervention was unavailable. Authors found only two studies which obtained long-term funding from foundations after the research phase and suggest that more research should focus on the factors enabling sustainable implementation of tested interventions in the future.
