Amy Jenkins (PhD student) and Professor Andrea Tales, and Dr Jeremy Tree, all from the Department of Psychology, and Dr Antony Bayer of the School of Medicine, Cardiff University, recently published a paper in a special issue of the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease on subjective cognitive impairment (SCI).

The objective of the research was to determine how much is known about subjective cognitive impairment (SCI) and how it is currently being managed within UK based specialist clinical practice. SCI is a relatively new concept whereby an individual will experience cognitive impairment on a subjective level compared to an individual who is experiencing mild cognitive impairment (MCI), thus cognitive impairment on an objective level.

In the article, Jenkins and colleagues reported the findings of an email-based service evaluation and discussed possible reasons for the low response rate, themes identified from the thematic analysis, and key messages and best practice recommendations for the management of SCI.
