Introduction
Technology use is a highly relevant part of everyday occupations and difficulties can lead to challenges among older adults with cognitive impairments. The aim of this study was to review empirical studies reporting on the use of technology for improving performance in everyday occupations and evaluate the effect of training strategies in technology use in older people with mild-stage dementia or mild cognitive impairment.

Method
A scoping review methodology was used. Key databases were searched, covering January 2000 to October 2016, to identify studies, which were screened and assessed for inclusion.

Results
In total, 14 studies were included. Most studies used quantitative designs with small sample sizes. The methods used to measure performance in everyday occupations differed. Six studies focussed on the use of technology for improving performance. Eight studies evaluated the effect of training strategies in technology use.

Conclusion
Although positive effects of technology use and training in technology use have been reported for instrumental activities of daily living outcomes, the evidence supporting the use of technology in enhancing performance in occupations in people with mild-stage dementia or mild cognitive impairment is limited. Future studies should focus specifically on people with mild cognitive impairment, use more rigorous designs and include standardised methods.
