Translations of the Minimum Data Set (MDS), for use in elderly migrants from Surinamese, Moroccan  or Turkish origin, are available upon request. For some of these cross-cultural adaptations of the TOPICS-MDS recorded versions are also available. These recorded versions can serve as training aterial for bilingual interviewers. For more information on the practical application of these migrant versions and access to the translated versions of the MDS, you can contact the developers of these tools by sending an email to Prof. Dr. M.
