I have found the Pocket Card a great resource for teaching geriatric assessments and placing emphasis on patient function. We use a "card trick", by folding the card in a unique way, the key components of assessment, including ADL's and the MMSE, line up together. OK, as a card trick, it's not much, but as a tool for teaching, it gets rave reviews!

I particularly like that the instruments are referenced.

I like the eye chart.

I like the way it looks. Easy to read.
