The telephone interview for cognitive status

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We report on the development of a new cognitive screening test administered over the telephone. The Telephone Interview for Cognitive Status correlates very highly with the Mini-Mental State Examination in Alzheimer's disease. It has high sensitivity and specificity to the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and high test-retest reliability in this population. The instrument is acceptable to patients and has a sufficient range to be useful in follow-up and field research studies of AD and possibly other disorders associated with cognitive impairment.
