This webinar will review the ethics and rational for occupational therapists performing cognitive assessments. Specific cognitive assessments developed to assess dementia, including their strengths and weaknesses will be discussed (MMSE, SLUMS, CASE CAM, ACE-R) and an effort will be made to provide tools for therapists when deciding "Are other dementia screening tools better?" Functional tasks designed to assess cognition in various clinical settings will be suggested including strategies for charting. There will be a discussion on clinical assessments to consider when assessing seniors for driving.
