Challis, D.J. and Carpenter, G.I. and Stewart, K. and Sturdy, D. (1999) The development of a national, standard assessment instrument for use in continuing care homes. Care Plan, 5 (3). pp. 19-21.
This study examines the possibility of developing a standard assessment instrument for residents in care homes, which could assess individual care needs, assist in constructing care plans and help to cost the level of care provided. Staff used a modified American Minimum Data Set/Resident Assessment Instrument in the pilot study. This showed that the MDS/RAI has the potential to be used in continuing care homes in the UK.
