Comprehensive geriatric assessment

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Comprehensive geriatric assessment (CGA) is a multidisciplinary or interdisciplinary approach that is tailored to the older adult. Domains addressed included physical and mental health, prevention, function, and quality of life, achieved in conjunction with addressing environmental factors and patient safety. CGA is tailored to the stage of life, in the overall context of health status and life expectancy. Attention is paid to psychosocial issues, implementation of advance directives, medication review and reconciliation, and caregiver support and burden. Current practice guidelines address several disorders common in the old, but tend to differ based on the source, requiring providers to tailor recommendations to the individual's health status and preferences.
