Screening and Diagnosis Detail
Community Screening Interview for Dementia
National Institute of Neurological and Communicative Diseases and Stroke/Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders Association Criteria (McKhann 1984)
"Essentially, a two-stage designwas utilized comprising the administration of the Community-Screening Instrument for Dementia (CSI’D) to eligible participants. The incidence study was conducted in two waves – two and five years after the prevalence study. Sub-samples of the study participants were selected for clinical assessment according to established cut-off scores that were derived from discriminant function analysis. Details of these had been described (Hall et al., 1996). The clinical assessment included a structured interview with an informant, neuropsychological testing, and examination by a physician as well as laboratory and imaging studies. All the information obtained was utilized in the consensus diagnosis process within each site, and inter-site agreement was essential before the final diagnoses were recorded. The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Revised Third Edition (DSM-IIIR) and International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision (ICD-10) criteria were used to diagnose dementia (American Psychiatric Association, 1987; World Health Organization, 1992). For AD, the National Institute for Neurological and Communicative Diseases and Stroke – Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Association (NINCDS-ADRDA) criteria were used (McKhann et al., 1984)."
