E-SPACE Symposium at the 46th Meeting of the Psychological Society of Ireland

A great representation of the E-SPACE team (Prof. Teresa Burke, Dr. Alberto Blanco-Campal and Dr. Unai Diaz-Orueta) will be present at the 46th Annual PSI Conference that will be held at the Sheraton Athlone Hotel, in Athlone (Co. Westmeath) on the 11th November 2016. 

The E-SPACE team will be presenting a symposium session entitled: Revisiting the Boston Process-Approach: a European Standardized Process Approach to Cognitive Evaluation of Older People.

First presentation, performed by Prof. Teresa Burke, will focus on "Revisiting the process-approach to cognitive assessment: Advantages of complementing traditional scoring with a focus on processes and strategies", with a special emphasis on the advantages of including a qualitative approach to neuropsychological evaluation without compromising standard administration procedures of cognitive tests.

Second presentation, performed by Dr. Alberto Blanco-Campal, will focus on "Latest adaptations of screening tests to a process-based approach: initial findings and advantages" with a special emphasis on the latest process-based approach adaptation of the Montreal Cognitive Assessment.

Finally, Dr. Unai Diaz-Orueta will present "Can test computerisation provide added value to a process-based approach neuropsychological assessment?" with a special emphasis on those indices and features of cognitive tasks that would clearly benefit from digitalisation.

The symposium will take place at the Stream C room of the Sheraton Athlone Hotel, on Friday 11th, from 2.00 pm to 3.30 pm. Check the final programme at:
