PARADELA, Emylucy Martins Paiva; LOPES, Claudia de Souza  e  LOURENCO, Roberto Alves. Portuguese adaptation of the Cambridge Cognitive Examination-Revised in a public geriatric outpatient clinic. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2009, vol.25, n.12, pp.2562-2570. ISSN 0102-311X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-311X2009001200004.

This paper presents the results of the first four steps (conceptual, item, semantic, and operational equivalences) of cross-cultural adaptation to Portuguese of the Cambridge Cognitive Examination-Revised (CAMCOG-R). The process was based on the theoretical model proposed by Herdman et al., which includes not only the four steps described above, but also measurement and functional equivalences, not evaluated in the current study. A panel of experts evaluated whether all dimensions that comprise the CAMCOG-R were present in Brazilian reality. Two translations and back-translations were performed, in addition to the "focus group" technique. The Brazilian Portuguese version of the CAMCOG-R (Br-CAMCOG-R) was developed, maintaining the 69 items from the original instrument, with different levels of difficulty. It was then applied to 196 elders, with the test lasting an average of 43 ± 9.4 minutes, and an average total score of 67 ± 14.8 points. The Br-CAMCOG-R can be a useful tool for the cognitive evaluation of elders that tested positive during initial screening.
