“On admission to hospital … as soon as possible:  Perform a full medical assessment of the person with stroke, including cognition (attention, memory, spatial awareness, apraxia, perception)”

- National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (2013) - Clinical Guideline 162

 Why OCS ?

Up to now, no short efficient cognitive screening tool was available that targets stroke survivors.
The OCS (Oxford Cognitive Screen) can be delivered at the bedside in acute stroke, is easy to administer and score and is inclusive for patients with aphasia and neglect. It returns a visual snapshot of a patient's cognitive profile which summarizes performance across 5 cognitive domains.
