2004 (English)In: Proc. AILS-04 Workshop, Lund: Lund University , 2004, 87-88 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper a prototype system as a tool for clinical decision support in the domain of cognitive diseases is presented. The number of patients is increasing while the number of patients that the general practitioner (GP) meets in primary care still is too low to make the GP well trained in diagnostics and management of patients in the area of cognitive diseases. In addition, new treatment strategies are established in clinical routine directed towards cognitive deficiencies with behavioral and psychological symptoms in the presence of dementia (BPSD). Additional support is needed in the investigation process of cognitive diseases. The system DIcog supports the clinician by challenging, complementing and/or confirming the individual’s own reasoning; providing with reminders of additional factors to consider; and functioning as a common ground for consultations and teamwork. A combination of inference techniques is used in the system; if-then rules for typical patient’s cases and for atypical cases an argumentative reasoning approach, which is currently being developed for the domain of cognitive diseases.
