These gait guidelines are the result of a consensus meeting funded by the CCNA, whereby experts from across Canada discussed and ultimately suggested a core set of measures to test mobility and cognition in clinical settings. The experts agreed that gait assessments are an important part of the motor-cognitive evaluation of older adults, and thus the authors of these guidelines describe the assessments that were included in the CCNA COMPASS-ND study. This paper also includes an instructional video for assessors on how to administer these gait assessments, viewable here.
