COPE in PACE: Reducing Neuropsychiatric Symptoms in Dementia Patients

"Care of Persons in Their Environment" in "Programs of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly" (COPE in PACE) aims to introduce evidence-based practices in clinical settings with Medicare and Medicaid recipients. The Penn team focuses on the efficacy of the online modules as compared to a traditional method of training delivery. The measures that will be evaluated include heath related quality of life, functional ability, and neuropsychiatric symptoms for the person living with dementia, as well as wellbeing, skills, and stress reduction for the caregiver. Some of the instruments that we use for implementation mapping are FRAME, ERIC, NOMAD, and ORCA. A key component of evaluation is fidelity monitoring, which will be done through transcriptions and machine learning capabilities.

COPE in PACE is currently undergoing beta testing with two sites.
