The DAPA trial aims to establish whether exercise is effective in treating against functional and cognitive decline in community dwelling adults with mild to moderate dementia. It is a randomised controlled trial which will recruit 468 participants to compare an additional structured exercise regimen to best usual care. The structured exercise intervention will be carried out over a 4 month period with a transition to community based sustainable physical activity.
The DAPA trial is led by the University of Warwick. You can read more about the trial here.
