🧠 In the news ~ Identifying dementia & mild cognitive impairment 🧠
The prevalence rate of dementia is high, around 5% to 8% in age over 60 worldwide.
Mild cognitive impairment is the intermediate stage between normal ageing and dementia. Early diagnosis can promote timely, professional advice and support for older persons with dementia and their family members. A brief digital cognitive test can help early diagnosis.
The Electronic Cognitive Screen (EC-Screen) is a validated and brief digital cognitive test, that uses a cloud-based platform, and runs on a tablet. The EC-Screen can be self-administrated, and the administration time is approximately five minutes.
