'Single' assessment of older people: comparison of the MDS-HC with current auditable methods in the home care setting

By G. Iain Carpenter, David J. Challis and Cameron Challis

Abstract

This project compared the use of an evidence-based, systematically developed, standarised assessment instrument for community care with existing assessment instruments, in two social services departments. We conclude that assessment methods without proven reliability may jeopardise the interests of older people and the need to raise standards
