Abstract

This study examined the utility of the Iowa Self-Assessment Inventory (ISAI) as a multidimensional screening tool for older adults in the acute care hospital setting. A sample of 98 patients age 60 and older were administered the ISAI, the Short Geriatric Depression Scale, and the Mini-Mental State Examination. The findings suggest the ISAI is useful for screening for depression but does not detect differences in cognition. However, qualitative data and literature review support the continued search for a holistic, humanistic screening tool to increase the quality and effectiveness of patient care.
