Why is it important?

Digital tools for the case finding of dementia could be adoperate more easily in the context of primary care, because of some important advantages: self-administration, reduction of time in administration and scoring, automatic report of results, consideration of more variables such as time of response. This review offer a panoramic of the availability of these tools all over the world, addressing differences among languages and countries, and health disparities.


Writing this article offered me the opportunity to discover a field of research very interesting and innovative.
