The current article reports data from a large-scale trial that, for the first time, assessed the utility and functional predictive value of this stroke-designed screen across a population of subacute stroke patients. It is interesting to note that though the LHD and RHD patients were both impaired on the rule finding and shifting task and the multiple object use task, only the RHD patients showed significant recovery of function. It is interesting that few other general screens for cognitive problems provide specific measures of spatial attention and praxis, and none capture the conjoint effects of working memory, selective attention, and sustained attention as does the auditory attention task here. This study demonstrates how the BCoS can contribute by being an aphasic and neglect-friendly, domain-specific, and efficient assessment for differential cognitive profiles across patient groups. At the initial assessment, affect was measured by the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, and dependency level was measured by the Barthel Index.
