Resources for the Frontotemporal Dementia Knowledge Scale (FTDKS)

The Frontotemporal Dementia Knowledge Scale (FTDKS) contains 18 true/false items to assess knowledge about frontotemporal dementia (FTD). The scale is designed for use with students, health care professionals, caregivers of people with FTD and the general public. It has been validated with healthcare professionals and caregivers. It takes approximately 5–10 min to complete, and questions address risk factors, symptoms, course, caregiving, and treatment. An analysis of the scale’s psychometric properties suggests it has adequate reliability (internal consistency reliability = .81) and validity (content, predictive, concurrent, and convergent).
