Behavioural Neurology Assessment – Short Form with TorCA Supplementation: Virtual Cognitive Assessment Beyond the MMSE and MoCA

The virtual MMSE and MoCA provide a basic assessment of cognitive function. In this webinar, we will demonstrate a more in-depth approach to virtual evaluation of cognitive function using the Behavioural Neurology Assessment (BNA-SF) and the Toronto Cognitive Assessment (TorCA). Both tests have been adopted as standards within the Toronto Dementia Research Alliance, and can be administered by health care professionals or trained assistants.
