Mini-Cog for the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease dementia and other dementias within a primary care setting

To determine the diagnostic accuracy of the Mini-Cog for detecting AD dementia and related dementias in a primary care setting.

To investigate the heterogeneity of test accuracy in the included studies and potential sources of heterogeneity. These potential sources of heterogeneity will include the baseline prevalence of dementia in study samples, thresholds used to determine positive test results, the type of dementia (Alzheimer's disease dementia or all causes of dementia), and aspects of study design related to study quality.

We will also identify gaps in the evidence where further research is required.

This is a protocol.
