Screening instruments that have been utilized with older adults include the CAGE (Ewing, 1984), the Michigan Alcohol Screening Test–Geriatric Version (MAST-G), and the Alcohol Use Disorders Identification Test (AUDIT; CSAT, 1998).

Reference:
Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (1998). Treatment Improvement Protocol No. 26” Substance Abuse Among Older Adults. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, 98-3179.

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?
