Validation of the Designation "Apathetic" on the Apathy Evaluation Scale

Abstract:
45 outpatients with TBI completed the AES-S. 37 family members, friends, or significant others filled out the AES-I. Three clinicians prospectively gave a blind impression of the presence or absence of apathy and retrospectively described his/her perception of the subjectÂ’s apathy on a seven-point subjective rating scale. No cutoff score on the AES-S or AES-I was found to have reasonable sensitivity and specificity with respect to the ability to predict the clinician's designation of a subject as apathetic
