Description

The Kimberley Indigenous cognitive assessment (KICA) project was started to meet the need for a validated (evidence that shows that a method is sound or good for the purpose intended) cognitive screening tool for older Indigenous Australians living in rural and remote areas. This resource was developed as part of the project. The instructional DVD along with the booklet outline shows how to use KICA with an interpreter; and also explains standardised instructions (a set way of carrying out instructions) for use of the assessment tools.

When to use this resource

This resource provides clear instructions which allows health practitioners to measure dementia and other cognitive impairment among older Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in rural and remote areas of Australia. It would be a useful training resource for practitioners who intend to use the KICA tool.
