This web seminar reviews strategies, challenges and benefits of measuring outcomes to evaluate dementia programs and interventions. First, the rationale for outcome measurement and the value of different measurement strategies is reviewed. Next, strategies for selecting outcome measures, including considerations of measurement burden as well as the frequency and scheduling of data collection, are discussed. Finally, the Rosalynn Carter Institute for Caregiving will present a past experience in using measured outcomes during program implementation and expansion.  

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify multiple methods for collecting outcome data;
  • Describe risks of using outcome data collected from proxies instead of from people with dementia;
  • Describe the benefits of using validated outcome measures; and,  
  • Discuss how outcome measures contributed to the expanded implementation of the “BRI Care Consultation” program in Georgia.
