Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study was conducted to examine the utility of three functional cognition screening measures: a performance-based revision of the Medication Transfer Screen, the Mini-Cog, and the Mini-Cog combined with the Medication Transfer Screen (Medi-Cog). Findings support the conclusion that the Medi-Cog may be effective at identifying persons with impaired functional cognition who are at risk for IADL impairment.
