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:
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.
