BCoS Cognitive Screen free pdf Following different kinds of brain damage, including stroke, head injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, degenerative change, people can experience a range of cognitive problems, in addition to any difficulties in motor function. These problems strongly influence a patient's ability to recover from a stroke, but often patients are not routinely screened to detect them. Birmingham-Oxford Cognitive Screen (BCoS) is a new test instrument, comprising of a test booklet, an examiner booklet, a patient booklet, a manual, and a pack of test objects. Developed to screen patients for cognitive problems, it provides a novel 'cognitive profile' across a range of cognitive processes within a 1-hour testing session, that will indicate whether a patient has a clinical impairment (related to norms) in five primary domains of cognition: Attention and executive function Language Memory Number skills Praxis and action BCoS has been validated against 'standard' neuropsychological tests used to measure similar cognitive functions, it has also been used for prognostic modelling, and assessed against measures of cognition and activities of everyday living for patients in the chronic stage. The first test of its kind, BCoS is an invaluable tool for neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, occupational and speech therapists, and a wide range of other clinical practitioners.
