Survey on Computerized Cognitive Test Batteries: The Physicians’ Perspective
 
The problem:
There is a need for innovation in cognitive testing approaches to the assessment of memory and cognitive concerns. Screening tests lack sensitivity. Neuropsychological testing is largely unavailable. Self-administered Computerized Cognitive Test Batteries (CCTB) that reliably detect cognitive impairment, could provide the needed innovation.
 
A new CCTB:
UBC researchers from cognitive science, computer science, neuropsychology, geriatrics, and behavioural neurology have developed Cognitive Testing on Computer (C-TOC). C-TOC
has 12 tasks, covers all cognitive domains, and takes about 30-45 minutes to complete. It can be done in a clinic office, and has the potential to be done online in a home setting. C-TOC has been developed with input from patients referred for cognitive evaluation (end-users), and from a cultural advisory panel.
 
Your perspective on CCTBs:
In this survey we ask you questions about your perspective on CCTBs, their feasibility, and their utility. We would like you to imagine a CCTB like C-TOC:  an easy-to-use tool that has validity in detecting MCI and dementia, and that can help in the clinical diagnosis of these conditions, potentially even in the identification of the underlying etiology.
