TOPICS – Short Form

 

The TOPICS – Short Form 2017 including Casemix forms were developed in collaboration with the Nederlandse Vereniging voor Klinische Geriatrie (NvKG – Dutch Association for Clinical Geriatrics) to use as a Patient Reported Outcome Measure (PROM) in the Dutch outpatient and clinical daily practice. The table below shows the 4 variants of the SF + casemix, including when (time of measurement) and where they can be used.
