Abstract

We recruited eight general practice (GP) practices for a pilot cluster randomized controlled trial (RCT) of a digital versatile disc/leaflet encouraging South Asian people to seek timely help for memory problems. Primary outcomes were feasibility (proportion of patients expressing interest, consenting) and acceptability. Seventy-eight of one hundred and two (76%) potential participants consented; 76/78 (97%) were followed-up. Thirty-seven of forty-one (90%) receiving the intervention rated this acceptable. Only 17/41 (41%) accessed it; they appeared then to be more likely to seek timely help. The intervention was acceptable and feasible but a full-scale RCT would be very expensive. It may be proportionate to make this intervention available without a full-scale RCT.
