This website from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center provides resources for completing a comprehensive geriatric assessment. Two videos are included: Administering the Timed Up and Go (TUG) and Administering the MiniCog. Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment is an evidenced-based, multidimensional evaluation that geriatricians and other health care providers use to determine functional age in older adults, guide future diagnostic and therapeutic interventions, determine reversible deficits and devise strategies to mitigate or eliminate such deficits.
