Abstract

Introduction: Hispanics remain underrepresented in dementia clinical research. This one-arm trial aimed to assess the preliminary efficacy of a culturally tailored recruitment educational strategy among Hispanic older adults on dementia knowledge, research participation attitudes, and enrollment. Method: The recruitment strategy included 6 one-session culturally tailored dementia education events at trusted community senior centers. Participants received a pre–post survey including a 5-point Likert-type scale and the Epidemiology/Etiology Disease Scale to assess dementia knowledge, and a 4-point Likert-type scale assessing research participation attitudes. We gave participants contact information slips to complete if interested in dementia research. We also tracked participants’ enrollment into the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center Cohort. Results: Dementia knowledge increased 0.9 points (5-point Likert-type scale) and 2.2 points (epidemiology/etiology disease scale, p <.001). Interest in participating in dementia research increased from 61.7% to 80.9% (p =.039), 64.0% returned their contact information slips, and 41.1% successfully enrolled into the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center Cohort. Conclusion: A recruitment strategy including culturally tailored dementia education improves dementia knowledge, research participation attitudes, and enrollment among Hispanic older adults.
