AAFP Monograph – Aging

The AAFP sends out mongraphs every few months.  I often glance at them and then pile them up in my study so taht I can r"ead them later"  .. (so that I can throw them away the next time I tidy up).

They're all on line … so today's copy: Aging and Health Issues: The Family Physician's Role is going right into the recycling.  It looks interesting …. and ther are several useful screening tools:

  • Folstein MMSE
  • Michigan Alcoholism Screening Test – Geriatric Version (MAST-G)
  • ADL self-maintenance scale
  • Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Scale (IADLS)

Now I'll never lose it …  and the office stays clean!
