Screening For Cognitive Impairments: Evidence-Based Tools

# e79   Screening For Cognitive Impairments: Evidence-Based Tools

by Jacqueline Hinckley, PhD, CCC-SLP, BC-NCD

0.15 CEUs

$ 34.00

This course provides clinicians with information needed to conduct effective cognitive screenings. Based on prevalence data, perhaps 50% of a typical clinician's caseload will include individuals with some type of cognitive impairment. Discussed will be evidence-based, formal cognitive screening tools to ensure that these impairments will be detected. All of these tools can be used in about 5-10 minutes. Participants will also learn how to estimate the percentage of clients on a typical caseload who may have cognitive impairments, based on diagnoses and prevalence data. This course concludes with a comparison chart of these evidence-supported tools and availability information. Offered for 0.15 ASHA CEUs – 1.5 contact hours. 

Sections Include:

  • Introduction and Definitions (19 minutes).
  • Prevalence Of Cognitive Impairments In Clinical Populations (25 minutes).
  • The Importance Of Using Formal Cognitive Screening Tools (20 minutes).
  • Evidence-Supported Screening Tools For Language And Cognition (27 minutes).
Content Disclosure: The content of this online CE course does not focus exclusively on any specific proprietary product or service. Presenter financial and non-financial disclosures may be found by clicking on the Presenter & Disclosures tab.
Course Format: Video PowerPoint presentation with author narration & downloadable handout.

At eCourse conclusion, participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss when cognitive screenings should be implemented and why.
  2. Discuss prevalence rates of cognitive impairments in clinical populations.
  3. Describe evidence demonstrating effectiveness of cognitive screenings
    and their impact on patient outcomes.
  4. Compare four cognitive screening tools.

A score of 80% or better must be received on the post test in order
to receive a certificate of completion.

ASHA CEUs: NSS online courses are registered with ASHA and are offered for ASHA CEUs. The number of CEUs is noted above. Note that 0.1 CEU = 1 contact hour = equals 1 CEE.

Licensing Boards: Most state licensing boards DO accept CEUs earned online (usually classified as home-study credits). Some state boards do, however, place a limit to the number of credits that can be earned via home study/online courses.
