UK Docs Using iPads to Diagnose Dementia

camtabIn a push to diagnose early Alzheimer’s and other dementias, primary care clinicians are being given iPads with CAMTAB’s mobile dementia screening test to administer to patients. It is a 10 minute test of “paired associates learning” or PAL test which is a visuo-spatial, culturaly unbiased test that is sensitive to dementia. University of Cambridge has spent 25 years validating PAL as a screening tool for dementia. Sorry, the App is not available outside of the UK as yet.
