The CASE is designed to assist the clinician in the diagnosis of DSM-IV™ Axis I clinical disorders in individuals from ages 55 to 90 years. The CASE consists of a self-rating form (Form S) and an other-rating form (Form R) that can be completed by a knowledgeable caregiver (e.g., spouse, child, home health care worker, sibling). Form R is especially useful to verify the information provided by the patient or when the patient is unable to complete the assessment due to physical or cognitive difficulties.
Patients and knowledgeable caregivers can complete the CASE in 40 minutes or less. Scoring and profiling are easy. You can convert CASE raw scores to T scores using the age-appropriate normative tables. Then, plot the T scores on the CASE Profile Form to get a graphic overview of the patient's clinical status or a comparison of multiple profiles (when available).
