Delivering and Measuring the Outcomes of Cognitive Remediation Across Clinical Settings

Cognitive remediation therapy (CRT) is widely disseminated and has become commonplace. Meta-analyses of the efficacy of CRT have generally concluded that CRT offers statistically significant, but small, effects in several different conditions including schizophrenia, major depression, traumatic brain injury and stroke, and mild cognitive impairment. However, these reviews have also suggested that CRT improves cognitive performance, but not functional skills. Combining skills training programs and functional skills training leads to systematic functional gains, particularly in terms of employment as an outcome. Topics that will be communicated and discussed in this session include: Who benefits from CRT (age and diagnosis, early course vs. chronic)? How is CRT best delivered (in person/over the internet)? What additional skills training should be offered? How are outcomes measured? Are there different strategies required for public sector and private rehabilitation services?
