Summary of "Quantifying risk of financial incapacity and financial exploitation in community-dwelling older adults: utility of a scoring system for the lichtenberg financial decision making rating scale."

This work examines the clinical utility of the scoring system for the Lichtenberg Financial Decision Rating Scale (LFDRS) and its usefulness for decision making capacity and financial exploitation. Objective 1 was to examine the clinical utility of a person centered, empirically supported, financial decision making scale. Objective 2 was to determine whether the risk-scoring system created for this rating scale is sufficiently accurate for the use of cutoff scores in cases of decisional capacity and cases of suspected financial exploitation. Objective 3 was to examine whether cognitive decline and decisional impairment predicted suspected financial exploitation.
