Medical researchers from Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Britain have developed a new, easy to use Alzheimer’s Disease test. This test differs somewhat from the SLUMS (download SLUMS exam) and Mini-Mental exams in that it can be self-administered. The test is intended for health professionals to use with individuals. Any person seeking a true diagnosis must see a physician in order to rule out other potential reasons for cognitive impairments.

Anyone using this exam should also stay mindful that while initial results of the test’s accuracy are promising, it has not seen widespread use; its credibility has not been fully established. That being said, as reported in the in British Medical Journal, initial results on the test’s accuracy are promising.
