Summary: CAMDEX is a diagnostic assessment which provides a way to identify dementia, and to differentiate it from other common disorders and the normal processes of ageing. It may be administered in the community or in hospital by doctors or other mental health professionals. CAMDEX-R is the newly-revised version of this internationally acclaimed instrument. For the first time, the range of information required for differential diagnosis of the varying forms of dementia is available in a single standardized interview and examination. CAMDEX-R consists of two structured interviews to ascertain the history and presentation of the disorder and a mini neuropsychological battery with a range of cognitive tests: CAMCOG. CAMCOG has been updated to cover more recently born cohorts and further examination of executive function. Includes a CD-ROM containing PDFs of the scoresheets for download and replication.
