The 11-month process of gathering norms for adults over the age of 65 is underway.
Data collection for the SPANS-X study started on 29 January and is set to be complete by mid-December 2018, when all data will be collated and analysed.
This new data will become the basis for a supplementary SPANS manual, with extended norms and the results of initial validation investigations reported. When data collection is complete, new information about the validity of SPANS use for older adults will be reported here. In the meantime, there will be occasional updates as new information becomes available.
Thank you for your interest in our SPANS-X study.
