Background/Aims: A timely diagnosis of dementia is important, and the Cognitive Function
Instrument (CFI) is a newly developed instrument to screen for cognitive decline. The aim of
this study was to evaluate the validity and internal consistency of the Norwegian version of
Methods: We included 265 participants with dementia, mild cognitive impairment
(MCI), subjective cognitive impairment (SCI), and a reference group without subjective or assessed cognitive decline. The participants and their relatives answered the self- and proxyrated
versions of the CFI.
Results: The Norwegian CFI had power to discriminate between
people with dementia and with MCI, SCI, and the reference group. The proxy version had better
power than the self-rated version in our participants (area under the curve [AUC] proxyrated
varying from 0.79 to 0.99, AUC self-rated varying from 0.56 to 0.85).
Conclusion: The Norwegian CFI was found to be a useful, valid, and robust instrument
