What is the best test to screen for dementia in the primary care setting? Evidence-Based Answer: When considering both diagnostic accuracy and administration time, brief (taking less than or equal to 10 minutes) single and multiple domain test alternatives to the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) may offer similar sensitivity. Testing of multiple domains, which is accomplished by the MMSE, appears to increase specificity (SOR: A, meta-analyses).
