Abstract

The best way to measure the outcomes of rehabilitation in the older person depend on the health problem, the setting, and the way the data will be used. The process of selecting rehabilitation outcome measures can be based on purpose, clinical relevance, test characteristics, and practical considerations. There is no one best measure for all uses. A small set of measures that complement each other may be the most useful choice for the clinician wishing to measure the effect of treatment.
