Abstract

Cognition-oriented treatments (COTs), including cognitive stimulation and training, are ever more popular in the older adult population despite the ongoing debate regarding their benefits and potential to prevent cognitive and functional decline. Numerous systematic reviews on the topic have produced mixed findings and recommendations and there is a dearth of credible and unbiased resources that stakeholders can turn to for complete up-to-date evidence base. CogTale is a novel platform that aims to both accelerate the data synthesis process, and provide a range of stakeholder groups access to up to date and reliable evidence to improve decision making.
