Home Health Toolbox II: Tests & Measures For Use In The Home
Practice Committee, APTA, Home Health Section
The Home Health Toolbox II, for use by physical therapy practitioners and researchers, is an impressive and comprehensive aggregation of assessments across multiple domains, ranging widely from physical capacity to cognitive functioning to social factors impacting health and functioning. A selection of these assessments can give a full picture of a patient’s status in the home setting and should play an important role in characterizing a patient’s problems and challenges, developing a treatment plan and following progress over time.
The value of this Toolbox is that its developers have carefully screened for instruments that will work in the home setting and describe their strengths, weaknesses, technical requirements and interpretation.
