Psychiatric Symptoms in Alzheimer's Disease: Mental Status Examination versus Caregiver Report.
Seltzer, Benjamin; Buswell, Arthur
Gerontologist, v34 n1 p103-09 Feb 1994
To examine possible reasons for conflicting prevalence data on psychiatric features of Alzheimer's disease, compared results of mental status examination by physician with questionnaire completed by caregivers in eliciting 12 different psychiatric symptoms. Found agreement only on categories suggesting agitation. Formal examination showed more correlations with stage and severity of dementia than did caregiver report. (Author/NB)
