At Anteris, we recognise the importance of cognitive health, which is why we are introducing cognitive performance assessments from CBS Health to measure how your brain is doing over time.
We all have a subjective idea of how our brains are doing—some days we can feel a bit “off” while other days we feel like we can take on the world, that’s where cognitive assessment comes in. By putting a number to these subjective feelings, we can discover what is causing the good days in order to have more of them. When your brain is performing, every activity in your daily life will be easier.
Anteris uses a leading cognitive assessment platform, CBS Health, to quickly measure brain health. Your healthcare practitioner will offer these measures to assess, monitor, and manage core areas of cognition to ensure that your treatment is on the right track.
The CBS Health tasks have been validated by decades of scientific research, and are proven to measure the most important aspects of cognition.
Performance is directly linked with the areas of your brain that are active when you’re at your sharpest. But more importantly, the tasks are fun, and only take 1.5 - 3 minutes each to complete. Now, not only will you feel better, but you can objectively track how your brain is responding to treatment.
If there is anything that you are concerned about please visit your GP so they can organise a referral to see us at Anteris Tauranga.
If it's an emergency please contact local mental health services for crisis support.
