The purpose of this presentation, the fourth of six, in a symposium addressing testing of the NDB model, will be to discuss the methodological issues and problems associated with measurement of the health state (HS) of the person with dementia residing in the nursing home. HSs, which encompass demographic variables, cognitive patterns, mood and behavior as well as medical diagnoses, medications, mobility, symptoms of dementia, and data collected from the Cumulative Illness Rating Scale for Geriatric Patients (CIRS-G), are among the background factors of the individual which affect and shape enduring patterns of behavior and place the individual at risk for disturbing behaviors such as wandering, vocalizations and aggression. Emphasis will be placed on the development of the Demographic Data and Medical Records Review Form (MDMRRF) which was designed specifically to measure HS as well as issues related to pilot testing of the instrument in the field. Reliability and validity considerations, instrument stability and scoring, sensitivity and selectivity issues as well as sources of error and consistency across projects will be examined.
