Arch Clin Neuropsychol. 2022 Oct 4:acac077. doi: 10.1093/arclin/acac077. Online ahead of print.
OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study is to propose a TeleNP model for remote assessment and offer practical recommendations for clinical practice with patients in Mexico and Latin America, based on a systematic literature review and clinical experience.
METHOD: A systematic review of studies from 2011 to 2021 in English and Spanish used TeleNP, teleneuropsychology, telepsychology, online, assessment, teleneuropsicología, and evaluación for the search; the databases examined included PubMed, BiDi UNAM, ScienceDirect, Google Scholar, and Wiley One Library; the Oxford Centre for Evidence-Based Medicine system was used to grade the levels of evidence. The experience of the last two years of students and faculty in the Master's and Doctoral Programs in Psychology, Clinical Neuropsychology Residency Program, was also used as a basis for this guide.
RESULTS: We propose a clinical model for TeleNP assessment in Mexico and Latin America based on the review of 31 articles and the practice of professors and students of clinical neuropsychology.
CONCLUSION: The proposed model describes a procedure and adaptations for home-to-home clinical practice in the neuropsychological assessment of Mexican patients that could also be used in other Latin American countries. Its reliability remains to be assessed, but this model and the suggestions proposed could be used in future studies and clinical trials for Mexican and Latin American populations.
