Intervention

Bristol Psycho-educational Intervention Group (BPI): The BPI group will comprise of two phases -

Phase 1 will be six, weekly group meetings each lasting up to two hours. Individuals will be informed about memory functioning, will identify their own disabilities and handicaps, will learn strategies of memory management, and undertake personal behavioural goal setting. Time will be given to explore specific problems brought to the group using group problem solving techniques.

Phase 2 will consist of six group meetings, three at fortnightly intervals, and three at monthly intervals. The focus of this phase will be to consolidate skills and continue with personal behavioural goal setting.

Non-directive Support Group (NDSG): The NDSG group will meet the same number of times at the same intervals as the BPI group but staggered to aid recruitment. The group will be led by two nurses with relevant clinical experience and will offer non-directive supportive therapy. This group will provide the opportunity to share experiences and talk about feelings without offering either a formal education or rehabilitation programme. The Non-directive Support Group is designed to control for the effects of regular follow-up and contact with healthcare professionals.
