Measurements for Long-Term Care
A Guidebook for Nurses


February 1998 | 263 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
At lastùa single-volume source for long-term care research instruments! Susan Voge and Sarah Beaton have brought together over 100 of the most frequently used (and some of the most difficult to find) measurement tools, providing users with immediate access to a wealth of useful information. Measurements for Long-Term Care lists instruments alphabetically by name. Each entry includes the name of the measurement tool, the toolÆs author or creator (with address), a description of the tool, its psychometric properties, the procedure for applying the tool, sample items such as examples of phrasing questions, scoring responses or data, the original source (publication) of the instrument, and references regarding the tool. The book includes abbreviations and acronyms, an index of instrument authorsÆ names, an index of nursing diagnoses and related instruments, an index of subjects (client disorders and problems), and an index of instruments titles. Measurements for Long-Term Care will prove an excellent shelf and clinic reference for researchers, clinicians, and advanced-level students in long-term and chronic care, gerontologic nursing, and rehabilitation nursing.

"Because nurses engaged in practice and research in long-term care need to measure outcomes and clinical variables, Sarah R. Beaton and Susan A. Voge formulated Measurements for Long-Term Care as a reference for instrument acquisition. . . . This book is a spectacular resource for doctoral nursing students as well as seasoned nurse researchers."
