Objective: to evaluate the eŸectiveness of the cognitive rehabilitation program in the treatment of patients with cognitive impairment. Material and Methods. The study included 95 patients in Federal Research and Clinical Center of FMBA of Russia, Moscow, with cognitive impairment, of which 57 were men and 38 were women, the average age was 56.8±7.5 years, and the average duration of the disease was 5.7±3.4 years. Patients were divided into 2 groups: the main one, where, along with drug treatment, the cognitive rehabilitation program developed by the authors was used, and the control one, in which only drug treatment was carried out. Results. The main group showed a statistically signi2cant improvement in cognitive functions on the SCOPA-Cog and MMSE scales, and an improvement in the qual- ity of life on the PDQ-39 scale (p<0.05). Conclusion. Against the background of the cognitive rehabilitation program, patients in the main group showed a positive dynamics compared to the control.
