About

Lewy body dementia (LBD) is the 2nd most common neurodegenerative dementia in the US. Optimal care requires an interdisciplinary approach, however often faced barriers include rural residence, limited access to specialists, travel distance, limited awareness of resources, and physical, cognitive, and behavioral impairments making travel to appointments challenging. Delivering interdisciplinary care remotely using video technology has the potential to improve access to care for patients with LBD.

Full description

The purpose of this study is to convert an in-person patient-centric interdisciplinary care model to a virtual platform using stakeholder engagement from individuals with LBD, their caregivers and healthcare providers. Subsequently researchers will conduct a prospective, randomized, controlled pilot study implementing the virtual stakeholder developed interdisciplinary care model (tele-neurohub) for 6 month and assess the implementation outcomes of feasibility, acceptability, and appropriateness of the tele-neurohub model. The research goal is to establish and iteratively improve a virtual interdisciplinary model of care allowing patients with LBD and their caregivers to access sub-specialty care from their home.
