The Cornell-Penn IDA: An Interview Tool for Assessing Decisional Ability of Individuals at Risk
The Interview for Decisional Ability (IDA) tool was originally designed for use by APS and has potential to be more widely used in venues like nursing homes, medical practices, etc. The webinar will introduce the Cornell-Penn IDA (Interview for Decisional Ability) and explain how it was developed from inception through roll out and evaluation. The webinar will particularly focus on the need for a standardized tool to assess decisional ability, the basic principles of the interview tool and how and when it is best utilized. In addition, the webinar will describe the training curriculum and results of recent research on the tools validity. A short video demonstrating the interview will accompany the presentation. Lessons learned and future directions followed by audience Q+A will complete the presentation.
