Functional Cognitive Assessment: The SLUMS and the CATG
This webinar discusses the St. Louis University Mental Status (SLUMS) examination and the Cognitive Assessment Tool Guide (CATG). The SLUMS is a brief oral/written exam designed to detect dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The CATG is a quick screening tool designed to assess functional cognition and establish an Allen Level score. Both of these assessments may be useful in determining an initial score identifying a decline in function or symptoms of dementia.
