This project aims to evaluate the characteristics of nursing homes and their residents in eight European countries, using standardised assessment instruments.
It seeks to determine validity of the InterRAI Long Term Care Facilities assessment instrument by comparing assessments of residents within and between nursing homes over a 12 month period. The project also generates information on the characteristics of nursing homes by collection of data to support and contrast residents’ needs, and this will be entered into a specially created web-based project database.
