Add to My Toolkit
Description:

The NPI-Q is a self-administered questionnaire used by informants (e.g., caregivers) to assess neuropsychiatric symptoms of a patient over the previous month and the effect on the patient and caregiver. Twelve domains and cardinal symptoms of each domain are assessed with yes/no responses. Both severity (a 3-point scale) and distress ratings (a 5-point scale) are recorded for each confirmed symptom. The severity scale applies to the effect on the patient, and the distress scale applies to the effect on the caregiver.

Protocol:

The NPI-Q is proprietary. See the NPI Test website for access to the NPI-Q.
