Abstract

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.
