Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

In this study, we extracted and linked two activities of daily living (ADL) scales from a national database: the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES). We challenge the notion that measurement across the continuum of health care can only be accomplished by all health care facilities using the same instrument.
