Brief cognitive tests are recommended in clinical services outside of specialized memory clinics as case-finding tools to reduce the diagnostic gap of dementia. Although the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) is among the most widely used brief tests in specialized memory clinics, its length precludes routine use in nonspecialty clinics. This study investigated whether a small subset of MoCA would suffice to match the performance of the full MoCA in detecting dementia and, hence, be useful in nonspecialty clinics.

Antipsychotic reductions have been the primary focus of efforts to improve dementia care in nursing homes by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services National Partnership. Although significant antipsychotic reductions have been achieved, this policy focus is myopic in 2 ways; there is no evidence for any increases in use of nonpharmacologic interventions, and there are indications for compensatory increases in the use of other (unmeasured) sedating psychotropics. This increased use of other sedating psychotropics is more concerning than the antipsychotics that they replaced, as...

Therefore, we aimed to summarize the up-to-date evidence on risk of fracture among older individuals with statin use.
