in instruments that can track changes in decision-making capacity that could be useful in the context of future screening for cognitive impairment and the development of interventions targeting functional outcomes in persons living with cognitive impairment and/or quality of life outcomes in their care partners/caregivers.

The goal of the FOA is to support a research network whose goals would be to review and assess the dimensions of higher cognitive abilities and functional capacities already believed to support higher order planning and decision-making, to develop valid and reliable measures of those abilities, and to provide support for pilot efforts during the instrument development and validation in a racially, ethnically, geographically, and diagnostically diverse set of participants as well as a set of enduring resources including the measurement instruments, documentation, and normative data that will enable other, future projects to incorporate the new measurements into studies.
