Addenbrookes cognitive examination-III

May 12 2014

The Addenbrooke’s Cognitive Examination-III (ACE) is one of the most popular and commonly used cognitive tests used in dementia clinics and in the assessment of other neurological disorders.

ACE-III replaced the previous ACE and ACE-R versions in November 2012.

It provides a sensitive, reliable, secure and easy to administer clinical tool for you and your team to assess cognition as part of the process of assessing for dementia.

The ACE-III includes five subdomains, which provide a cognitive score out of a maximum of 100.
