Abstract

Background and objectives: The Test Your Memory (TYM) scale is a screening tool, which assesses mild cognitive impairment (MCI). It has shown better psychometric outcomes than the Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE). We aimed to translate and adjust into Spanish a conceptually equivalent version. Subjects and method: Translation-back translation method, complemented with qualitative methods, and pilot survey with 42 healthy Spanish people from different group of age to ensure the right comprehension. Results: While translating, 54% of the items presented no difficulty at all; 27%, medium difficulty; 18% high difficulty. Some adaptations were made for cultural, grammatical and conceptual reasons. The pilot survey showed a good comprehension of the test. Conclusions: The TYM test could be a good choice for detecting MCI in the Spanish population and could resolve the problems caused by the limitations of the MMSE. © 2010 Elsevier España, S.L.
