Anosognosia is highly prevalent among people with Alzheimer's disease (AD). This investigation aimed a) to develop and validate a semi-structured interview to assess insight and judgment in patients with AD, and b) to investigate the long-term effect of poor awareness on participants and their caregivers. The Structured Clinical Interview for Insight and Judgment in Dementia (SIJID) was validated in a cross-sectional and a longitudinal study. The SIJID showed high test-retest and inter-rater reliability, and strong discriminant and convergent validity, demonstrating that is a reliable and valid instrument to assess insight and judgment to be used among patients with AD.
