Ethnogeriatric Assessment Domains: Intervention-Specific Data

(Tripp-Reimer, Brink, and Saunders, 1984)

  1. Adaptation of questions to age and cultural congruence with western medical concepts, for example:
    1. How are you and your family treating this condition?
    2. What kinds of medicines, healings, have you tried?
    3. Have they helped?
    4. How has this condition been treated in the past?
  2. What type of treatment do you think you should receive from me?
  3. Culturally specific content for specific interventions—(e.g., dietary/nutritional/food preferences, cultural basis for chronic pain management)
  4. Does anyone else need to be consulted?
  5. Is there any other information that might help us design a treatment plan?
