CST provision

We are currently collaborating with Peking University Health Science Centre and can provide CST training.

Research Projects

A single blind randomised control trial funded by Beijing Health Bureau was conducted by Drs. Zhaorui Liu and Yueqin Huang from 2012 to 2015. The 7-week CST programme was used in this project. Evaluation at the end of the 7th week shows CST can slow down the progress of cognitive impairment and decrease the caregiver burden. However, after the 3 month follow up, there was no difference between the intervention and control groups. This preliminary finding demonstrates that long term CST is highly needed.

Currently, Drs. Liu and Huang are seeking new funding opportunities to support studies on maintenance CST and Individual CST.
