Activity details

The RAPid Community COGnitive screening programme (RAPCOG) is a Marketplace and AG A3 Member. The RAPCOG program for mild cognitive impairment and dementia is developing short, accurate and easy-to-use community based screening tools including the Quick Mild Cognitive Impairment (Qmci) screen and Quick Memory Check. The Qmci is used in the FP-7 funded PERSSILAA project, see http://www.perssilaa.eu. RAPCOG has developed a caregiver cognitive screen, the Quick Memory Check, designed to empower carers who have concerns about an older adult’s cognitive function. It is designed as an initial screening tool for use by caregivers of older adults attending outpatients or at home to identify those who should have further assessment by their primary care physician. The Qmci has been validated in several EU countries and this will be extended over the next three years. Its use in primary care as a way to screen large numbers for cognitive impairment will be explored.
