Questionnaires to the elderly

Does anyone have some tips when giving out questionnaires to the elderly population? Is there anything in particular that I need to prepare?

You can pay some attention to the design of the background information questions. What demographic data do you want to record? For example, it might be important that you record the age of your participants. You can also consider recording information of the health conditions of your participants if that is relevant to your study or if you feel that the health condition might affect/ bias the results of your study.

The online questionnaire should be easy to use. For paper questionnaire, the font size should be bigger and words need to be clear to help the elderly read it well. you may consider finding staff/helpers to provide help to elderly if you think it is needed.

In my evaluation project, I used a new scale that had never been tested among Hong Kong patients. Do I need to conduct a factor analysis before data analysis?

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
