(MIGA) Mini Geriatric Assessment To Replace the Comprehensive Geriatric Assessment
This is a comprehensive Geriatric Assessment (CGA) currently used to evaluate elderly people in order to be able to assess their multiple organ pathology, cognitive, functional and social problems. This CGA is a very time consuming tool although a powerful one.
