Cognitive Assessment Toolkit: Tools for Early Identification of Mild Cognitive Impairment

Identifying and evaluating cognitive impairment in its early stages can be quite beneficial. The Cognitive Assessment Toolkit equips healthcare providers across specialties and practice settings with the skills and resources needed to identify cognitive impairment in its early stages.

At the conclusion of this program, participants should be able to:

  • Discuss the AD8, Mini-Cog©, and MoCA cognitive screening tests including strengths, weaknesses, administration, and training requirements for each
  • Select, administer, and interpret an appropriate cognitive screening test
  • Differentiate among normal aging, mild cognitive impairment, and dementia
  • Discuss abnormal screening results with patients and caregivers and address their concerns
  • Collaborate with patients and families around lifestyle approaches to address modifiable risk factors for dementia
