79531-0Basic mobility items number [Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care]Active

Term Description

The Boston University Activity Measure for Post-Acute Care (AM-PAC) instrument was developed as a functional outcomes measurement system that can be used across post-acute care settings. It assesses a set of functional activities in three separate areas - basic mobility, daily activity, and applied cognition - that most adults are likely to encounter during daily activities. Basic mobility includes basic movement and physical functioning activities, such as bending, walking, carrying, and climbing stairs. The electronic AM-PAC instrument results in a score and a standard error that represents the score's precision and is based on the number of questions answered. For example, answering more questions will result in higher precision as reflected by a lower standard error value. [http://www.bu.edu/bostonroc/instruments/am-pac/]
