LOAD Family Processing:NCRAD Referrals

Load family processing overview
LOAD Family Processing Overview

Family calls NCRAD: meets LOAD criteria

NCRAD coordinators determine location of family members

If at least 1 affected or

unaffected near an

approved Center

If family localized

to area not near

an approved Center

If family members

geographically

dispersed

NCRAD enrolls

family and collects

info through mail

NCRAD notifies

appropriate Center

Columbia may enroll

as a “travel family”


Guidelines for referring ncrad caller to adc
Guidelines for referring NCRAD caller to ADC

  • Center must have IRB approval for Genetics Initiative

  • At least 1 affected or unaffected > 60 years of age lives within 1 hour of Center

    or

  • Center willing to travel or routinely travels to location of affected family members


Review of diagnostic guidelines 1
Review of diagnostic guidelines (1)

Diagnosis of Probable/Possible AD

  • In-person evaluation

  • Review of medical records from a formal dementia evaluation (+ informant interview)

  • Review of general medical records with informant interview

    Diagnosis of Not Demented

  • In-person evaluation

  • Telephone interview: functional status, medical history, brief cognitive testing (or documented MMSE)


Review of diagnostic guidelines 2
Review of diagnostic guidelines (2)

What we are striving for…

  • Proband: affected individual evaluated in-person by Center or genetics staff associated with Center

  • Affected sibling: evaluated in-person or diagnosis by medical records/informant telephone interview

  • Third family member: evaluated in-person or diagnosis by medical records/informant telephone interview (affected) or telephone interview with brief cognitive testing (unaffected)

    TO MEET THESE GUIDELINES, CENTERS MAY HAVE TO TRAVEL


Since the press release and media stories in July

of 2003, NCRAD has received over 1,000 calls/emails

78 TOTAL LOAD FAMILIES REFERREDas of 10/14/03

Collaboration between Centers and the travel list!


The travel list

  • Will be maintained at Columbia

  • Work out details at the coordinators’ meeting
