OBJECTIVES: Fuld Object Memory Evaluation (FOME) evaluates the episodic memory functions of encoding, storage, and recall across five recall trials and a.

This sample was then stratified for education, age and sex. The objective of the present study was to provide normative data on the FOME test for obbject Brazilian elderly population and to investigate the influence of education, age and sex on episodic memory performance. A clustered random sampling of a population of individuals aged 60 years old and older from three different socioeconomic classes upper, middle and low was used, following official census data 11 Socio-demographic variables Beta value Std.
The statistical analysis was memoey on the crude means and standard deviations SD of the FOME scores evaluatioj on the frequencies and percentages of socio-demographic variables. Table 2 shows the mean and standard deviation SD of the FOME scores, immediate total recall, delayed recall, recognition and verbal fluency scores between sex. After a 15 minutes interval filled by other tests, an unexpected final recall is requested. The reference groups of women sexyounger individuals age and participants with higher education levels education were considered to provide better clinical interpretation and all these three variables presented significant influence on the FOME score.
Normative data of Fuld Object Memory Evaluation test for brazilian elderly population
The results suggest that the FOME is a reliable and valid instrument to screen for dementia in older community-dwelling Chinese adults. The socio-demographic characteristics of the sample assessed at home have been presented in greater detail recently 13but the mean age was We analysed the performance of a Brazilian community-based sample of older subjects drawn from two Brazilian cities on the FOME test. Dement Geriatr Cogn Disord. The psychometric properties and the discriminative power of FOME were examined in a convenience sample fulx community-dwelling older individuals, of which 57 were diagnosed with dementia.
The sample had a mean age of This study examined the clinical validity of FOME as a screening tool for dementia in older Objext adults. The interviewers tried at least three times to evaluate the elderly subjects at home before they were considered to have refused.
METHOD The normative sample consisted of 2, older subjects with normal cognitive performance selected as part of a two-phase epidemiological study to investigate the prevalence of dementia in a community-based sample in Sao Paulo and Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.
The greatest difficulties in assessing the memory of older subjects regarding the clinical diagnosis of dementia or MCI occur when the subjects evaluated are illiterate, have minimal formal education, or already have significant memory deficits.
Table 1 shows the socio-demographic characteristics of the sample.
Services on Demand Journal. Int J Geriatr Psychiatry. Another reason supporting its use is that it is a memory test during which even very elderly patients with significant memory problems and individuals with very low formal education typically do not complain or show anxiety.
On the contrary, they enjoy the test. Table 4 shows mean and SD for the FOME scores, immediate total recall, delayed recall, recognition and verbal fluency scores in the three different education levels.
The factors associated with memory score were analysed by multiple linear regression models with FOME score as dependent variable and education, age and sex as independent variables.
The authors have no conflict of interest. This fulf proved useful to improve the screening of mild to moderate dementia in low educated older people 9.
Data for this study were select between and Prevalence of cognitive and functional impairment in a community sample in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.

Normality of distribution was verified using the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. May 19, ; Revised: Therefore, although the statistical analysis indicated that education influenced FOME scores, the FOME remains suitable for use in older people with lower levels of education.
Clinically significant depressive symptoms and associated factors in a community sample of elderly subjects from Sao Paulo, Brazil. The normative sample consisted of 2, older subjects with normal cognitive performance selected as part obbject a two-phase epidemiological study to investigate the prevalence of dementia in a community-based sample in Sao Paulo and Ribeirao Preto, Brazil.
Clinical validity of Fuld Object Memory Evaluation to screen for dementia in a Chinese society.
This strategy aimed to evaluate a sample containing city districts that represent the area universe context of elderly individuals living in Sao Paulo and Ribeirao Preto. Age and education are variables known to affect cognitive performance, so the influence of these two variables on the FOME score is not surprising. The absence of the effects of education on the assessment performance makes FOME a clinically useful instrument for older adults with limited education.
Depressive symptoms were evaluated with a item instrument, the D scores from 0 to 10which contains questions related to the presence of depressive symptoms most of the time during the past 2 weeks Conclusion We conclude that gender, education and age had effect on the Fuld Object Memory Evaluation performance in this Brazilian community-based sample. After each recall, he is slowly and clearly reminded verbally of each item omitted in that trial, for a total of 5 trials.
