[Correspondence] Pointing the FINGER at multimodal dementia prevention
The FINGER trial (June 6, p 2255)1 results have been highly anticipated and are of great interest to people trying to advance dementia prevention. This study delivers positive news but also raises challenging issues for the specialty. The FINGER trial combined four lifestyle-based strategies comprising about 360 intervention hours. On a composite cognitive measure, the intervention group improved by 0·23 SDs. Controls who continued standard care plus psychoeducation likewise improved by 0·19 SDs.
