A long-standing concern in the advancement of nursing science has been the dearth of replication work. Measurement or operationalization of scientific constructs is at the heart of this concern. In setting the stage for this symposium, the purposes of this paper are twofold. First, we describe the conceptual and operational base for a set of interactive studies designed to test the NDB Model in nursing home residents and to replicate findings in independent samples. Second, we highlight measurement challenges encountered in operationalizing the model. Focusing on validity and reliability concerns, we discuss a range of measurement techniques including direct observation, physical assessment, neuropsychological testing, and caregiver and self-reporting. Techniques and specific instruments, both existing and new, are examined for feasibility of use with a demented population in the complex environment of the nursing home. Strategies for coordinating the use of multiple instruments across studies and sites to enhance reliability and replication of results are also addressed.
