AM-PAC® short forms can be used to administer AM-PAC® Basic Mobility, Daily Activity and Applied Cognitive items. Short Forms were developed for different settings and applications (i.e., Inpatient Low function, Acute Hospital, Home Care, Outpatient, Community Mobility). Items are carefully selected to match the level of function of patients in a specific care setting.
The AM-PAC® CAT is used to customize item selection to match each person’s ability. Mobility, Daily Activity and Applied Cognitive item banks are administered using a computer-based algorithm selects a small subset of items to administer to a patient from each AM PAC item bank based on the patient’s response to previous items. CAT requires point of care computer access.
