This is a great question. Out side of what the KITE CAR T study uses (and can’t be shared) I have yet to come across anything. Dr. Pulsipher let me know one of our new attending physicians has an interest in this and I will pass along her response to this question. Just emailed her yesterday.
I also asked our neuropsych team about this and they could not think of a tool that could be administered by just any team member.
I would be interested in hearing if anyone has a tool.

Does your facility use a validated tool for neuro assessments during CAR T?
The CARTOX-10 exists, but it has limited pediatric applicability.
I haven’t heard of so many tools from other places other than handwriting samples/assessments, identifying people in the room, etc.
