AbstractThe objective of this study was to validate the Chinese version of Minimum Data Set-Home Care (MDS-HC) in Hong Kong Chinese elders. The respondents were 179 people aged 60 years or older who attend an outpatient clinic in Hong Kong. Firstly, inter-rater reliability was examined and we found acceptable inter-rater reliability. Internal consistency was also obtained for all the composite outcome measures in MDS-HC and most of the Cronbach coefficients were in the range from 0.6 to 0.8. Finally, the concurrent validity of the Chinese version of MDS-HC was assessed by comparing the MDS-HC triggered CAPs and a clinician's diagnoses. We found that high consistency between the results from MDS-HC and clinical judgement in 20 out of 30 CAPs.
