MoCA course overview

December 15, 2020

Only 29 spots available: First-come, first-served! Sign up by Friday, Jan. 15, 2021.

Equip yourself to understand the root cause of a patient’s cognitive symptoms faster with the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA).

Become certified to administer MoCA, a straight-forward cognitive screening tool that can be used to screen patients for more than 17 cognitive illnesses, including ALS, Alzheimer’s disease, Depression, Multiple Sclerosis, and Schizophrenia.

When a patient starts to experience memory loss and other forms of cognitive decline, it can be a stressful time for everyone involved. No matter the cause, it’s important to quickly determine how an individual’s cognitive function is affected so an appropriate treatment plan can be devised.

With proper training, the test is quick to administer and easy to interpret. The MoCA advanced screening test is available in both a paper and digital format.

The MoCA assesses:

  • Short-term memory
  • Visuospatial abilities
  • Executive functions
  • Attention, concentration and working memory
  • Language
  • Orientation to time and place
