Abstract

Objectives: This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (prognosis). The objectives are as follows:. Primary objective Identify all available multi-domain prognostic models (that is, models involving two or more modifiable risk factors for dementia) used in middle-aged adults (45 to 65 years) for the prediction of subsequent dementia. Secondary objectives Descriptively summarise the characteristics of these prognostic models. Appraise the predictive accuracy (discrimination and calibration) in the development and validation studies of these models. Identify implications of the use of dementia prognostic models for the management of people at risk of dementia or populations. The objective in PICOTS format (Table presented.). Investigation of sources of heterogeneity between studies The expected sources of heterogeneity are: measurement of candidate predictors in the model; type of dementia (e.g. early- versus late-onset dementia, Alzheimer's disease versus other forms of dementia); the country where the study was conducted; and method of diagnosis of dementia.
