Stockholm MemClin – a project that aims to increase the knowledge of the cognitive examination’s complexity

Stockholm MemClin is a project with participants recruited from the local Memory Clinics. MemClin is a naturalistic database with different types of clinical data but with broader inclusions than in usual research databases. The Stockholm MemClin project will accumulate large quantities of data allowing for the improvement of the diagnostic accuracy, the expansion of knowledge on differential diagnostics, and will in the long-term also harmonise the examination methods. This gives MemClin an important role in the generation of new hypothesis and the validation of research results.
