Abstract

Date Presented 4/20/2018

The Menu Task is a screen for functional cognitive ability that underlies the performance of instrumental activities of daily living. The results of this study add to the validity of the Menu Task and support its use in acute settings. Results indicate there is merit to support functional cognition as a new construct.
