Assessment of cognition (thinking) in a shopping task.
Type of Study/Intervention
Form of MS
Relapsing remitting MS, Secondary progressive MS, Primary progressive MS, Individuals without MS (e.g., family, friends) also needed.
This research aims to further develop a relatively new cognitive assessment tool, the Multiple Errands Test-Revised, which looks at the impact of someone’s cognition (thinking skills) on their ability to complete everyday tasks. This will mean that we can better help people with cognitive impairment to identify difficulties they might have at home, and to find strategies to help them be as independent and safe as possible despite this.
Your involvement requires a single one-hour session. You will complete a set of assessments related to your cognition and mood. This will occur at your choice of two Brisbane locations: The Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (Herston) or Brookside Shopping Centre (Mitchelton).
Adults between 20-70 years of age.
• Living in a care facility
• Not confident in written and spoken English
• Know or suspect that you have a significant cognitive, psychiatric or intellectual impairment (mild impairment is okay)
• Need support to make decisions about your medical care
