Purpose: To assess changes in behaviour and mood associated with the onset of various dementia syndromes

Age: 30-90 years

Time: 15-20 minutes

The Behavioral and Psychological Assessment of Dementia (BPAD) is a standardised informant report that assesses the changes in both behaviour and mood that are associated with the onset and course of various dementia syndromes.

This 78-item assessment categorises symptoms into three clusters (Psychopathological, Behavioral, Biological) and further, into seven domains:

  1. Perceptual/Delusional
  2. Positive Mood/Anxiety
  3. Negative Mood/Anxiety
  4. Aggressive
  5. Perseverative/Rigid
  6. Disinhibited
  7. Biological Rhythms).

Key Features

  • Standardised informant report
  • Large print response booklet for those with visual impairment
  • Assesses symptoms over two time periods to measure current impairment and past impairments and computes a change score
  • Respondents can include family members, paraprofessionals, and professionals who have regular contact with the patient
  • Items at grade 6 reading level
  • Assessment can be used in a variety of settings (outpatient clinics, assisted living facilities, clinical research settings)
  • Flexible enough to be used with heterogeneous groups of individuals suspected of having or have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease, vascular dementia and psychiatric problems

BPAD Scoring

After hand-entry of raw scores, the BPAD scoring software generates scores that represent current impairment (i.e., CURRENT), past impairment (i.e., PAST), and change in impairment over time (i.e., CHANGE). The Score Report also provides T scores and percentiles for the BPAD Total and domain scores and graphical presentation of BPAD T scores. The scoring software is included in the BPAD Introductory Kit and provides unlimited scoring and report generation.
