  • Evaluating Distinctions in the Assessment of Late-Life Disability. [Multicenter Study]
  • JGJ Gerontol A Biol Sci Med Sci 2017 Oct 12; 72(11):1538-1546

  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite inconsistencies in its hierarchy, the 5-category scale is more effective in stratifying risk for mortality and functional dependence than the two 3-category scales but not the 4-category scale. When assessing changes over time, however, the addition of questions on accommodations and reduced frequency to those on difficulty and dependence, to form a summative disability score, offers little benefit and increases the burden of the assessment.
  • Aging, the Central Nervous System, and Mobility in Older Adults: Interventions. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: In order to develop effective preventive interventions for this prevalent syndrome, multidisciplinary teams are essential particularly because of the complex nature of the syndrome. Additionally, integrating innovative methods into the design of interventions may help researchers better measure complex mechanisms, and finally, the value of understanding the link between the CNS and mobility should be conveyed to researchers across disciplines in order to incorporate cognitive and mobility measurements into study protocols.
