Enhancing ‘meaningfulness’ of functional assessments: UK adaptation of the Amsterdam IADL questionnaire
The A-IADL-Q-UK provides a measurement of functional decline for use in the UK that captures culturally relevant activities and correlations in the expected direction with cognitive and functional measures are found.


Validation of the Amsterdam IADL Questionnaire©, a New Tool to Measure Instrumental Activities of Daily Living in Dementia
The Amsterdam IADL Questionnaire is a reliable and valid instrument in the evaluation of dementia and found no differences between early- and late-onset dementia patients.
Amsterdam Dementia Cohort: Performing Research to Optimize Care
An overview of the results produced based on the Amsterdam Dementia Cohort, which includes the development of novel, easy to use diagnostic measures such as visual rating scales for MRI and the Amsterdam IADL Questionnaire, insight in different subgroups of AD, and findings on incidence and clinical sequelae of microbleeds.
Assessment of Instrumental Activities of Daily Living in Dementia
The role of the Amsterdam Instrumental Activities of Daily Living Questionnaire as a valuable diagnostic tool in dementia in a memory clinic setting is supported, and a fair diagnostic accuracy for A-IADL-Q and an additional value in the diagnosis of dementia are shown.
Are IADLs comparable across countries? Sociodemographic associates of harmonized IADL measures
Results suggest that the predictors of IADLs in different countries are comparable, and the associations between sociodemographic variables and independence in preparing meals, shopping, and doing housework are similar across countries.
Assessing and Adjusting for Cross-Cultural Validity of Impairment and Activity Limitation Scales Through Differential Item Functioning Within the Framework of the Rasch Model: The PRO-ESOR Project
To facilitate the pooling of data in international studies, a project set out to evaluate the cross-cultural validity of impairment and activity limitation measures used in rehabilitation from the perspective of the Rasch measurement model.
Patterns of Loss of Abilities in Instrumental Activities of Daily Living in Alzheimer’s Disease: The REAL Cohort Study
In this study including 471 community-dwelling women with AD of the French REAL cohort, the loss of the 8 IADL, assessed with the Lawton binary grading, was homogeneous for more than four fifths of the patients.
Characterizing magnitude and selectivity of attrition in a study of mild cognitive impairment
Identification of potential non- returners is relevant, especially in MCI studies, in order to develop retention strategies to minimize attrition.
Validation of the Spanish version of the Lawton IADL Scale for its application in elderly people
The results confirm that the Spanish version of the Lawton IADL Scale has excellent reliability and validity and a moderate to large sensitivity to change.
Activities of daily living and quality of life across different stages of dementia: a UK study
Findings suggest that different factors are important to consider when trying to improve or maintain quality of life (QoL) at different stages, and knowledge about performance deterioration in different ADLs has implications for designing interventions to address specific activities atDifferent stages of the disease.
