Methodological considerations when using proxy measures in dementia

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Background: In recent years an alternative measurement approach has developed

    which uses proxy or surrogate reports by carers or clinical informants

    as a means of assessing people with dementia. In recommending

    a tool-kit of measures for dementia conditions, the Australian Dementia

    Outcomes Measurement Suite (DOMS) project investigated this methodology

    as it represents an important piece of complementary evidence when

    assessing dementia conditions. This paper reports on work funded by the

    Australian Government which aimed to investigate best practice assessment

    methods in the use of proxy / informant / surrogate reports for people with

    dementia.
