OBJECTIVE: To determine initial feasibility and reliability of the Repeatable Battery for the Assessment of Neuropsychological Status (RBANS) administered via videoconference to a sample of older individuals with and without cognitive impairment.
METHOD: Eighteen subjects were administered forms A & B of the RBANS in both counterbalanced face-to-face and videoconference conditions. Subjects included 7 healthy controls, 6 with mild cognitive impairment, and 5 with Alzheimer disease (mean age = 69.7, SD = 7.7; mean education = 14.3, SD = 2.8; mean MMSE = 26.7, SD = 2.9). Pearson correlations and paired samples t-tests were performed to compare RBANS index scores between test conditions across the sample as a whole.
RESULTS: All correlations were significant (mean r = .80), ranging from r = .59 (p.25).
CONCLUSION(S): RESULTS support the feasibility and reliability of videoconference-based administration of the RBANS. These findings also offer further evidence in favor of teleneuropsychology. Continued research is needed to confirm these findings and extend them to other neuropsychological assessments in a variety of populations.
