BOSTON UNIVERSITY ACTIVITY MEASURE — POST-ACUTE CARE (AM-PAC)
The Boston University Activity Measure for Post Acute Care (AM-PAC)is a functional assessment evaluation test designed for use in assessing rehabilitation outcomes. This outcome instrument measures function in three domains: basic mobility, daily activities, and applied cognitive. It can be used for functional assessment of adults with a wide range of diagnoses and functional abilities. Patients can respond to test items or the instrument can be completed by a clinician or family member. The assessment can be used for quality improvement, outcomes monitoring, and research activities in inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, home care, nursing homes, and long-term acute care settings. It is available in two basic formats: a computer-based version for use in rehabilitation settings, and a paper-based short-form version for outpatient use.
LATE-LIFE FUNCTION AND DISABILITY INSTRUMENT (LATE-LIFE FDI)
The Late-Life FDI is an outcome assessment evaluation test designed for use by community-dwelling older adults. This assessment tool measures meaningful change in the areas of function, defined as a person's ability to do discrete actions or activities, and disability, defined as a person's performance of socially- defined life tasks. There is a 16-item disability component and a 32-item function component. The assessment can be used to assess clinical outcomes in programs designed for seniors. It can also be used in clinical research studies to examine the impact of treatment and pharmacological interventions that aim to improve function and minimize disability. OPTIONS: Manual and scoring software package with manual, scoring software, and software user guide.
PEDIATRIC EVALUATION OF DISABILITY INVENTORY (PEDI)
The Pediatric Evaluation of Disability Inventory (PEDI) is a developmental assessment system designed for use with children with disabilities. This comprehensive clinical assessment of key functional capabilities and performance of children between the ages of six months and seven years can also be used to evaluate older children with functional abilities that are less than those expected of a 7-year-old child without disabilities. It is a descriptive measure of a child's current functional performance that can be used to track changes over time. The assessment measures both capability and performance of functional activities in three content domains: self-care, mobility, and social function. In clinical settings, it can be used to monitor functional outcomes, and in research studies of treatment approaches, it can be used to document functional change. The assessment is available in a paper-based format or in a computerized format called PEDI-MCAT, which provides individual reports that summarize a child’s functional status in the domains of self-care and mobility function and compares the child's scores to norms from 6 months to 14 years of age. OPTIONS: Manual; scoring forms; and software.
