  1. The accuracy of self and informant ratings of physical functional capacity in the elderly.

    Article - En anglais

    To compare the accuracy of self-ratings with informant-ratings of physical functional capacity in the elderly, 150 elderly patients attending a geriatric day hospital (GDH) and their formal and informal community carers were administered a questionnaire about their ability to perform activities of daily living (ADL).

    Direct observation of the patients' performance by therapists at the GDH was used as a standard, after the reliabiIity and validity of this approach had been evaluated.

    Self-ratings were shown to be more accurate and less biased than informant-ratings, both for individual ADL and overall functional capacity.
