Healthcare providers use standardized outcome
measures to determine risk for falls in older adults.
Research describing the usefulness of outcome measures
in people with mild cognitive impairment is
lacking. This research describes the usefulness of
three outcome measures in identifying risk for falling
for people with and those without mild cognitive impairment. We found that when explained in a standardized
manner in people with and without mild
cognitive impairment, the 8-Foot Up and Go is more
useful than the Timed Up and Go test for identifying
people at risk for falling.
