The purpose of this presentation, the fifth of six in a symposium addressing testing of the NDB model, is to focus on methodological issues and problems associated with measurement of the physiological need state (PNS) of the person with dementia residing in the nursing home. PNSs, which encompass hunger, thirst, pain, and the need for elimination, are among the proximal, i.e., dynamic and contextual factors, in the NDB model. These needs can precipitate dementia-related behaviors such as aggression, vocalizations or wandering. Emphasis will be placed on the development of the Physiological Need State Assessment (PNSA) instrument which was designed to specifically measure these variables as well as issues related to its pilot testing in the field. Reliability and validity considerations specific to measurement of subjective self-report by persons with cognitive impairment; instrument stability and scoring; and sensitivity, selectivity, sources of error and precision of the instrument will also be addressed.
