Term Description

The General Practitioner assessment of Cognition (GPCOG) is a screening tool for cognitive impairment and designed for primary care settings. PMID: 11943052 The GPCOG consists of two parts: a cognitive assessment conducted with the patient and an informant questionnaire, which is only performed if the results of the cognitive assessment are inconclusive, i.e. patient scores between 5-8 out of 9. If the patient scores between 0-4 on the cognitive assessment, then cognitive impairment is indicated. If patient scores 9 (all answers are correct), no significant cognitive impairment is observed and further testing not necessary. For the informant questionnaire, if the patient scores 0-3 out of 6, cognitive impairment is indicated.
