Geriatrics Research Instrument Library (GRIL)

The Geriatrics Research Instrument Library (GRIL) is a newly established website that provides a user-friendly resource to guide researchers in selecting instruments to assess and measure clinical outcomes relevant to older adults across a full range of domains. GRIL allows users to easily search, compare, and select research instruments based on their description, copyright information, completion time, available translations, and more!

GRIL currently contains over 175 instruments across 18 geriatric domains: Anxiety, Caregiver Burden, Cognition/Dementia, Delirium, Depression, Frailty, General Health Status/Quality of Life, Health Behaviors, Hearing, Medical Comorbidity, Medication Adherence, Pain, Physical Activity/Performance, Physical Disability, Resilience, Sleep, Social Support, and Vision.

GRIL was developed in collaboration with the AGING InitiativeWake Forest University, and Yale Pepper Center.
