The MoCA© test will no longer be free to use from 1 September 2020. 


Mini-ACE (Mini-Addenbrooke’s Cognitive Examination)
is now the recommended screening tool for cognitive impairment in New Zealand.


HealthPathways will reflect this change from 1 September 2020. 


Online training for the use of the Mini-ACE will be available on regional DHB and Ministry of Health learning platforms from 1 August 2020. Links to the training will be posted at once the training is available.
