Non-pharmacological interventions for improving language and communication in people with primary progressive aphasia: a network meta-analysis

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (intervention). The objectives are as follows:

  • To assess the efficacy of different non-pharmacological interventions for people with primary progressive aphasia (PPA) on global language abilities, word retrieval, functional communication, cognition, depressive symptoms, quality of life, and adverse events.

  • To use network meta-analysis to compare and rank non-pharmacological interventions for PPA on the key outcomes of word retrieval and quality of life.

This is a protocol.
