Mild cognitive impairment clinical syndrome may be applied to some patients presenting with decline in their cognition. Once identified they are offered support and resources to enable them to adjust to the difficulties as a result of cognitive decline, including accessing prevention strategies and access to research.

Your GP may undertake an initial assessment to consider whether you have a Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) clinical syndrome. Following a diagnosis, you should be offered a review which will help you to understand your diagnosis and to access support and interventions which could lower your risk of developing dementia. Since MCI is not a dementia diagnosis but could indicate that your are at higher risk of developing dementia later in life, you should also be offered access to research trials which may reduce this risk: you can find out more about about what research is available to you at Join Dementia Research.
