Reducing dementia risk by targeting modifiable risk factors in mid-life: study protocol for the Innovative Midlife Intervention for Dementia Deterrence (In-MINDD) randomised controlled feasibility trial.

This paper by O’Donnell et al. (2015) outlines the study protocol for the Innovative Midlife Intervention for Dementia Prevention (In-MINDD) study. It describes the rationale for undertaking a feasibility randomised controlled trial (RCT) and for adopting normalisation process theory as the underpinning theoretical framework for the process evaluation. This protocol paper presents the study aims and describes the study design in detail including recruitment, baseline data collection, randomisation, the intervention and control arm of the feasibility RCT as well as the process evaluation and its role in understanding the experiences and perspectives of the In-MINDD participants. The authors then discuss the primary outcomes and present the analysis plan for the study.
