 **Mild Neurocognitive Disorder** (also known as **Mild Cognitive Impairment**,​ or MCI) is a condition in which individuals demonstrate cognitive impairment with minimal impairment of instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). Although it can be the first cognitive sign of [[geri:​dementia:​alzheimers|]],​ it can also be secondary to other disease processes (e.g. - neurologic, other neurodegenerative disorders, systemic, infectious, or psychiatric disorders). When there is //​significant//​ impairment to daily function, a [[cl:​2-major-neurocog-disorder|major neurocognitive disorder]] needs to be considered instead. **Mild Neurocognitive Disorder** (also known as **Mild Cognitive Impairment**,​ or MCI) is a condition in which individuals demonstrate cognitive impairment with minimal impairment of instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs).
