GIL, Isabel Maria de Assunção et al. Effectiveness of reminiscence therapy in improving older people's cognition, depressive symptoms, and quality of life: systematic review protocol. Rev. Enf. Ref. [online]. 2018, vol.serIV, n.16, pp.155-160. ISSN 0874-0283.

Context: Non-pharmacological interventions are valuable therapeutic strategies aimed at people with cognitive impairment. Reminiscence Therapy (RT) is one of the strategies highlighted in the literature. Objectives: To identify the best evidence available on the effectiveness of RT in improving the cognition, depressive symptoms, and quality of life of older people in institutional settings. Method of Review: The methodology proposed by the Joanna Briggs Institute will be used. A specific search strategy will be developed for each database/repository to identify relevant studies. Titles and abstracts will be analyzed, and articles that do not meet the protocol criteria will be excluded. The methodological quality of the remaining articles will be assessed. Data will be extracted from the included articles. Presentation and interpretation of results: The critical analysis of existing data on the effectiveness of RT in these domains and settings will contribute to the dissemination of the best evidence available on the topic. Conclusion: The best evidence should be disseminated to guide healthcare professionals in the implementation and development of RT programs focused on older adults with cognitive impairment in several institutional contexts.
