<p>Approximately 30% of patients with Parkinson's disease experience mild cognitive impairment (PD-MCI), often affecting executive functions. Our objective was to assess tolerability, safety and preliminarily efficacy of Goal Management Training® (GMT) for PD-MCI. GMT was administered at home, for five weeks. Dysexecutive Questionnaire (DEX), Parkinson Disease Questionnaire (PDQ-39), Zoo Map Test and Dementia Rating Scale-II were administered before, one and four weeks after Adapted-GMT. Reliable Change Index (RCI) was calculated. One participant completed GMT with caregiver. Executive complaints decreased (DEX RCIs between -2.10 and -1.68), PDQ-39 was maintained (RCI = -0.18). Adapted-GMT seems safe for PD-MCI, but efficacy remains doubtful.</p>
