Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study was conducted to compare the BIMS to alternate screening measures in the identification of individuals with functional cognition and IADL impairment that may compromise community independence post-hospital-discharge. Findings demonstrate that the BIMS, along with a brief performance-based screening measure and self-report, could better identify individuals who are at risk for poor outcomes in acute or postacute settings.
