Our new article about the validation of the Rowland Universal Dementia Assessment Scale (RUDAS) in our multicultural memory clinics has been published! Together with my colleagues from the Slotervaartziekenhuis in Amsterdam and from the Maasstadziekenhuis in Rotterdam, we have tested this instrument in our low-educated immigrant population and compared it with a more common screening tool (the MMSE). Read the full article here.
Even with the RUDAS, diagnosing dementia in diverse elderly in the Netherlands is still quite the challenge. We will continue to work on more in-depth tools to improve our diagnostic trajectory!
