Abstract (German)

ASCOT (Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit), entwickelt von der University of Kent (England), ermöglicht es, die Lebensqualität von pflegebedürftigen Personen und deren Angehörigen zu erfassen. Darüberhinaus können mit ASCOT auch die Effekte von Betreuungs- und Pflegedienstleistungen auf die Lebensqualität erhoben werden.

Das Team des WU Forschungsinstituts für Altersökonomie hat ASCOT auf Deutsch übersetzt und getestet.

Seit 2020 ist die WU berechtigt, Lizenzen auszustellen und somit die deutschsprachigen ASCOT Erhebungsinstrumente und zugehörige Materialien interessierten Personen und Organisationen zur Verfügung zu stellen.

Darüberhinaus wird die deutschsprachige Version von ASCOT vom ASCOT-Team der WU (Forschungsinstitut für Altersökononmie) weiterentwickelt.

Abstract (English)

ASCOT (Adult Social Care Outcomes Toolkit), developed by the University of Kent (England), enables to assess the quality of life of people in need of care and their informal carers. In addition, ASCOT is also useful for evaluating quality-of-life effects of care service provision.

The team at the WU Research Institute for Aging Economics translated ASCOT into German and tested the tools.

Since 2020, WU has been authorized to issue licenses and thus to make the German-language ASCOT survey instruments and related materials available to interested persons and organizations.

In addition, the German version of ASCOT is being further developed by the ASCOT team at WU (Research Institute for Economics of Aging).
