The Six-Item Cognitive Test for Dementia Screening

More Info



The 6 Item Cognitive Impairment Test (6CIT) has been found to be a valid screening instrument for detection of dementia (Brooke & Bullock, 1999).

The 6CIT is brief and easy to administer and score. It is now widely used by Primary Care Physicians in the UK and internationally. Its primary use is as a Recognition tool to help identify people who should be referred on to a Memory Clinic for more specialist investigation
