CONy 2024 | Treating functional cognitive disorder

Narinder Kapur, PhD, Dip Psych, University College London, London, UK, discusses the current treatment approach for functional cognitive disorder (FCD), highlighting that it is highly individualized for each patient based on their specific needs and symptoms. Clinicians should consider comorbidities that must be treated, such as anxiety, mood disorders, sleep disturbance, and headaches. Appropriate psychoeducation allows patients to understand why their symptoms occur, and providing coping strategies can aid them in better management of the cognitive difficulties they experience. These may include pneumonic strategies, making associations, rehearsing situations and scenarios in particular ways, or using external memory aids. This interview took place at the 18th Annual Congress on Controversies in Neurology (CONy 2024) in London, UK.
