About the assessment tool

Therefore, the THINC Task Force has, therefore, developed a brief assessment tool, the objective of which is to help physicians screen for cognitive dysfunction in their patients with depression. The tool includes the 5-item Perceived Deficits Questionnaire (PDQ-5), in addition to four traditional cognitive assessments which have been reconfigured and gamified for computer-based administration. Thus it assesses both a patient’s subjective assessment as well as key objective measures of cognitive function.
