Abstract

Validation of remote video teleconference (VTC)-based procedures for geropsychiatry applications is essential to ensure validity and reliability of diagnostic procedures. The current study demonstrates the similarity of scores obtained from several brief neurocognitive screening measures in an outpatient VA geropsychiatry clinic population when participants were tested in-person and via VTC. Results revealed similar mean scores and moderate to good consistency among our mixed geropsychiatric sample on brief measures of global cognition, attention, and visuospatial function.
