ABSTRACT
Ethnic diversity among older patients in Hawai'i is common; yet few data exist concerning the applicability of cognitive testing instruments in non-Caucasian populations. This project aimed to determine the specificity and sensitivity of the IQCODE for the detection of cognitive impairment in a Japanese-American population. Results confirm that the IQCODE is a valuable tool for primary care physicians to detect impairment in this population.
