Return of Amyloid Imaging Research Results in Mild Cognitive Impairment

Return of Amyloid Imaging Research Results in MCI

Project Period: 06/01/2014 - 05/31/2019          PI: Jennifer Lingler, PhD, MA, CRNP

Preliminary work suggested that research participants with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and their families were receptive to receiving amyloid imaging results and capable of understanding the purpose, results and implications of these results when presented using a stanardized approach. This study built on this work with the overall goals to 1) establish a data-driven understanding of the benefits and burdens of returning amyloid imaging results to participants with MCI and their family members and 2) to identify the information and support needs of patients and families who are offered amyloid imaging research results.
