Screening for Cognitive Function with BrainCheck® Toolkit
Public Domain Cognitive Screening Tools
The BrainCheck platform includes digital versions of many commonly used screeners for mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and dementia. These include the St. Louis University Mental Status (SLUMS) exam and the Short IQCODE.
Additional Cognitive Screening Tools
Additional cognitive screening tools included with the BrainCheck platform include digital versions of the clock-drawing test, a cognitive decline questionnaire, and a range of screening tools for detecting traumatic brain injury.
Included Tools for Behavioral Health
Depression and Anxiety Screeners
Depression and anxiety can often be symptoms of cognitive impairment — and vice versa. The BrainCheck platform includes digital versions of the PHQ-9, Geriatric Depression Scale, and GAD-7 questionnaires.
Stress and PTSD
Stress can also contribute to cognitive impairment. The BrainCheck platform includes the Perceived Stress Scale questionnaire, as well as PCL-5 post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) checklist.
Addressing Other Common Cognitive Concerns
