Sammanfattning

Background and purpose The detection of memory impairment is an important part of dementia screening. However, the scope of memory measures in current screening batteries is limited. There is a need for a short yet sensitive instrument for early detection of memory impairment that could serve as a complement to existing globally oriented screening tests, for example, Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). To that end, the current study investigates the sensitivity and psychometric properties of the memory screening instrument The Five-Items Memory Screen -Extended Variant (FIMS-XV). Methods Hundred and forty-five participants included in the Gothenburg Mild Cognitive Impairment Study-27 patients with subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), 73 with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and 45 with mild dementia-underwent cognitive screening including the MMSE and FIMS-XV. Ninety participants also underwent extensive neuropsychological testing. Results The FIMS-XV showed high internal consistency and strong correlations with established neuropsychological memory tests. Both the FIMS-XVdelayed recall score and the FIMS-XV total score differentiated mild dementia patients from patients with SCI and MCI. Conclusions The FIMS-XV shows promise as a sensitive tool for screening for memory impairment in all putative phases of dementia.
