GPCOG PDF - Overview
GPCOF means The General Practitioner Assessment of Cognition is a short screening tool for dementia. The test includes a patient assessment and a caregiver interview. It takes about four to six minutes to complete. The tool was developed in 2002 by Henry Brodaty and colleagues at Prince of Wales Hospital in Australia.
GPCOG is a screening tool, not a definitive diagnosis. It can indicate if more testing is needed, but you should consult a healthcare provider for further tests. There are other, sometimes reversible, causes of memory loss that medical tests can confirm or rule out.
The first section of the GPCOG is a brief patient assessment, which takes about four minutes. Depending on the score the patient receives for this section, the test may also call for a caregiver to complete an informant interview, adding an additional two minutes to the test.
