Better know these facts!

Here’s an interesting study from Spain:

Asking patients two questions: “How old are you?” and “What year were you born?” had a specificity (the probability that a person not having a disease will be correctly identified by a clinical test) of 97.8% and a negative predictive value of 98.9% in helping to rule out dementia.

(Reference: JAMDA, Volume 14, Issue 8, August 2013)

I just quizzed myself and passed...phew!
