Abstract

The complexity of AD necessitates that multiple disciplines interface effectively in the assessment of patient, caregiver, and family. This multidisciplinary effort should not be focused on the mere exchange of data. As this article emphasized, just from the perspective of nursing, it is critical that the various disciplines involved know about the purpose, focus, and process of assessment approaches used by each in the convergent effort to comprehensively evaluate the disease and its possible changes, as well as its impact on function, cognition, behavior, and emotion. From this article, it should be apparent that effective multidisciplinary assessment is not exchange of data but rather purposive interchange of clinical information to achieve the clinical goals of assessment, diagnosis, explanation, intervention, prognosis, and evaluation.
