Age: Adult, Elder Adult
Qualification Level: A (Psychologist)
Provides a comprehensive list of variables that capture the essential aspects of an individual's mental status during the evaluation (e.g., Affect, Eye Contact, Judgment, Reasoning)
The MSRS software provides unlimited scoring, interpretation, and report generation for the Mini-Mental® State Examination (MMSE®) and the 30-item MSRS Checklist. The MSRS was developed to help the clinician organise and record information about an individual's mental status. The information from the Checklist can be completed on-screen, or a copy of the Checklist items can be printed from the software and completed during the evaluation.
Results from the MMSE Test Form can be manually entered into the software along with the item responses from the MSRS Checklist. The software scores and interprets the MMSE only, the MSRS only, or both instruments combined, and then generates the MSRS Evaluation Report. This report presents the raw scores and T scores from the MMSE derived from the population norms presented in the MMSE Clinical Guide.
The report includes a Longitudinal Profile Record (LPR). The LPR is especially useful for clinicians who are monitoring individuals over time, because it presents the scores and item responses for the current report, as well as the scores and item responses for up to four previous administrations. The Evaluation Report also includes the item responses from the current MMSE and/or the MSRS Checklist. The demographic information for an individual client file can be edited as needed.
- The checklist provides a comprehensive list of variables that capture the essential aspects of an individual's mental status during the evaluation (e.g., Affect, Eye Contact, Judgment, and Reasoning).
- The software gives clinicians the option to create up to six User-Defined Variables for tailoring the checklist to the special needs of various treatment settings (e.g., Ability to Perform Activities of Daily Living, Safety Awareness).
- The software offers the clinician flexibility by permitting the scoring, interpretation, and report generation of the MMSE only, the MSRS Checklist only, or of both measures combined.
- The software saves valuable report writing time and provides user-friendly system functionality with program navigation tools, file handling, report editing features, and ToolTips®.
