Introduction
Listed below are links to research articles that have used the MMSE in languages other than English. These bibliographies are offered to clinicians and researchers to assist them to gain access to materials that may be useful to them in their work.
This bibliography was created by developing a list of the 27 most common languages in the Australian community. For each language the search terms MMSE and Mini-Mental State Examination were used to identify the relevant literature Searches were conducted through PsycINFO and Medline. Once the initial bibliography was developed titles, place of research and abstracts were examined for evidence that the MMSE was administered in a language other than English. The final bibliography includes only references where such evidence was noted
