The beginning:
The Wisconsin Card Sorting Test
The Wisconsin Card Sorting test is a neuropsychological tool that is used to evaluate patients with psychiatric disorders such as schizophrenia, bipolar disease, stroke and autistic children. It is a tool that is used to test executive function and to determine the function of the frontal lobe. This tool was developed by Milner (1963) to perform the assessment of brain lesions in patients with prefrontal lobe dysfunction. Nurses can use this tool to assess the executive functions of their patient in the mental health setting, the geriatric setting and pediatric patients and to implement the appropriate interventions based on their findings. This paper is a discussion of the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test...
