Default MMSE - part of physical or to be listed in workup ?

Hi everyone,

Once you think you should evaluate a patient with MMSE, should it be done during the encounter or listed as part of the workup ? Just asking as doing a complete MMSE takes a while... Thank you

I think it should be in the work-up, but you doing it briefly during the encounter.

In a case like memory loss, you would perform a quick MMSE during the encounter. You are correct to not perform the full one (not enough time). You must perform the quick version.

All the best!!
