AGE Research & Development Chair, Lori Schindel Martin, co-chaired an inter professional working group building a new standardized version of the DOS. The tool, piloted in eight health care organizations across Ontario, records direct observation of responsive behaviour. In addition, it was used to record responsive behaviour episodes evident in one- minute intervals from de-identified video clips.
AGE provided data analysis support to the research team in this multimodal sensor study and will be acknowledged as a contributor in its publication. The new standardized BSO-DOS© shows promise as a research tool to measure patient outcomes in future projects. Learn more here
