  • Mini-Cog for the diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease dementia and other dementias within a secondary care setting. [Review]
    Cochrane Database Syst Rev 2019; 9:CD011414Chan CC, Fage BA, … Seitz DP
  • CONCLUSIONS: This review identified only a limited number of diagnostic test accuracy studies using Mini-Cog in secondary care settings. Those identified were at high risk of bias related to patient selection and high concerns related to index test conduct and applicability. The evidence was indirect, as all studies evaluated Mini-Cog differently from the review question, where it was anticipated that studies would conduct Mini-Cog and independently but contemporaneously perform a reference standard assessment to diagnose dementia. The pattern of test accuracy varied across the three studies. Future research should evaluate Mini-Cog as a test in itself, rather than derived from other neuropsychological assessments. There is also a need for evaluation of the feasibility of the Mini-Cog for the diagnosis of dementia to help adequately determine its role in the clinical pathway.
  • A 4-Item Case-Finding Tool to Detect Dementia in Older Persons. [Journal Article]
    J Am Med Dir Assoc 2019Liew TM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Using rigorous methods, this study developed a brief cognitive test that is free of charge, takes <5 minutes to complete, covers the key cognitive domains, and has standardized instructions to allow its administration even by nonphysicians. This brief test is well suited as a case-finding tool in nonspecialty clinics (such as in primary care and geriatric clinics) and may improve care-integration with specialized memory clinics that utilize MoCA.
  • Online engagement and cognitive function among older adults. [Journal Article]
    Geriatr Gerontol Int 2019; 19(9):918-923Amini R, Chee KH, … Parker S
  • CONCLUSIONS: Given the findings, the development of new technologies for online social engagement needs to be one of the priorities for researchers and policymakers in the field of aging and dementia. Geriatr Gerontol Int 2019; 19: 918-923.
