Project Title: Computerized Assessment for Post-Operative Cognitive Decline (POCD) in Elderly Surgical Populations – a Multi-Centre Study
The DalCAB is a web-based tool designed to assess fundamental aspects of cognition that could bridge the gap in the lack of consistent method or tool to identify elderly patients at risk of developing POCD from the use of general anesthesia. The goal of this project is to develop a data set of pre- and post-operative cognition measured by the DalCAB, in view of various intra-operative measurements and treatments.
