Validating the gds depresion screen in the nursing home

Retest data were collected to estimate reliability using intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) for each of the tool scores (Importance, Satisfaction and Importance × Satisfaction).

For construct validity testing, Spearman's correlation coefficients were used to assess whether Wh OM scores were correlated with scores from the Late Life Function and Disability Instrument (LLDI) and Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS).

For individuals with SCI [8], test-retest and inter-rater reliability intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs) estimates were substantial (ICCs 0.90), and it was moderately correlated with related items from a measure of social participation (the assessment of Life Habits) [10].

Among community dwelling power mobility users, the Wh OM demonstrated good test-retest reliability with telephone administration (ICCs 0.77–1.00) [9].

Additional studies with a larger sample size are needed to further explore the psychometrics of the measure.

Cognitive declines among residents may prevent them from completing outcome measures independently and necessitate the use of proxy respondents.

Therefore, our objectives were to determine the retest reliability and construct validity of the self-report and proxy versions of the Wh OM among older adults living in residential care.

Residents were excluded if they had been in the facility or using a wheelchair Participants were recruited from 11 care facilities in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia as part of a larger cross-sectional study.

After reviewing the study protocol informed consent was obtained from residents or their surrogate decision makers.
