SAOP3 screening questionnaire:

This version of the SAOP screening questionnaire is an updated version of the SAOP2, presently in use throughout Moffitt Cancer Center. The first questions of the Mini-Mental Status have been replaced with the Mini-COG, a more recent instrument with excellent screening properties. The scoring rules are now on the questionnaires with suggestions for a next step. The suggestions can be adapted to the local context.

Electronic versions: The SAOP3 questionnaire exists in iPad version and in Powerchart version. If interested, please contact Dr. Extermann.
