Result: Indonesian version of ST-LNNB instrument was valid in all items. On inter-rater reliability test, Kappa value varied between 0.96 and 1.00, with value <1.00 on item 7 (Kappa 0.99), item 9 (K 0.99), item 11 (Kappa 0.99) and item 14 (Kappa 0.96). A total Kappa value was 0.99. Conclusion: Indonesian version of ST-LNNB is valid and reliable (Kappa 0.99) as an instrument on cognitive function disturbance screening.
