Delirium, Dementia, and Other Cognitive Disorders

Included in this category is the recommendation that the category be divided into 3 broad syndromes: delirium, major neurocognitive disorder, and minor neurocognitive disorder. The Work Group is also exploring removing dementia, categorizing behavioral disturbances, and selecting specific domains and measures of severity of cognitive functional impairment.

Other disorders include those proposed to be subsumed under other diagnoses such as cognitive disorder NOS, dementia NOS, and vascular dementia.
