The Dementia Rating Scale (DRS) was developed during the early 1970's to improve upon the available psychological and neurological tests and procedures used to diagnose and monitor the course of patients with dementia. The uses and abuses of the instrument and its efficacy relative to other now available instruments will be discussed by DRS creator, Dr. Steven Mattis. Time for Q & A will follow. Take advantage of this opportunity to learn from one of our distinguished psychometric pioneers!
