The DAPA trial aimed to establish whether exercise is effective in treating against functional and cognitive decline in community dwelling adults with mild to moderate dementia. It was a randomised controlled trial which recruited 468 participants to compare an additional structured exercise regimen to best usual care. The structured exercise intervention was carried out over a 4 month period with a transition to community based sustainable physical activity.

The results of the DAPA trial were published in the BMJ

The DAPA trial was led by the University of Warwick. You can read more about the trial here.
