Abstract

A valid tool is needed to assess preferences that are relevant and important to nursing home (NH) residents. Originally developed for older adults receiving home care services, the authors adapted the Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory (PELI) for use with NH residents. Content validity was initially established using a panel of experts in long-term care. PELI items were cognitively interviewed with 31 Veteran and 39 non-Veteran participants (N = 70). Responses from cognitive interviewing guided substantial revisions of the PELI (>25% of items) to include language that NH residents use and understand, reducing potential measurement error and ensuring the preferences assessed are relevant to NH residents. Future work will further adapt the PELI for use with more diverse groups and health care settings, and assess its psychometric properties. Using the PELI will help move clinical teams closer to the goal of providing person-centered care informed by individual preferences.
