La ricerca in relazione allo sviluppo di strategie comunicative nell’ambito del trattamento delle demenze ha avuto grande importanza negli ultimi vent’anni. La maggior parte degli studi, condotti in Australia e Gran Bretagna, hanno posto l’attenzione sull’uso della menzogna nella cura dei pazienti affetti da demenza. All’interno di questo filone di ricerca sono stati sviluppati costrutti teorici per garantire e implementare la validità etica di questa tipologia comunicativa. Al fine di promuovere, nel contesto Italiano, l’uso etico di comunicazioni "non veritiere" nel trattamento dei pazienti con demenza tale studio ha esaminato e adattato l’esistente costrutto Dementia Orientated Reality, sviluppato originariamente in lingua inglese.
