The main goal of this project is to develop and conduct preliminary acceptability testing for an eHealth treatment based on a combination of education and cogni-tive behavioural therapy for functional cognitive symptoms. We will develop a protocol for the inclusion of a diagnostic tool for FD patients characterized by functional cognitive symptoms into memory clinics for identification of patients based on our recent review. Using a participatory design, this ESR will develop an education package for use with general practitioners on how to explain and discuss diagnosis of FD characterized by functional cognitive symptoms. Finally, we will run a small n=20 feasibility study using the developed intervention in a routine clinical setting.
