Formatted abstract This article is one of two in JCN by Aselage (2010a,b) on the subject of feeding difficulty in older adults with dementia. Both studies are based on reviews, the first (2010a) being a concept analysis of feeding difficulty in dementia, and this present article considering the psychometrics of instruments designed to measure feeding difficulty in older adults with dementia. This study both delights me and disappoints me in equal measure: my delight stems from the citations to my own work (with Deary and others) on nutritional assessment (Watson & Green 2006) and the Edinburgh Feeding Evaluation in Dementia (EdFED) scale (Watson 1993, 1996, Watson & Deary 1997) and the acknowledgement of its preeminence amongst scales for the measurement of feeding difficulty in dementia owing to its extensive psychometric testing (Watson 1997, Watson et al. 2001a,b). My disappointment stems from the paucity of work by others in this field generally and specifically in the area of measurement.
