Abstract:This study aims to examine how the concept of ‘Positive Health’ can be used in the current practice of health care to improve the positive health of the elderly. For health care organizations, there are no tools available to translate the scores of the digital test of positive health into (health care) needs, desires and abilities. Therefore, an interview protocol should be developed to identify the (health care) needs, desires and abilities of the elderly on the basis of the scores of the current digital test of positive health. This study was carried out in a Dutch health care organization, called Sensire. To translate the scores of the digital test of positive health into (health care) needs, desires and abilities, a semi-structured interview protocol was constructed. To ensure that it was tailored to the elderly, the communication handicaps of the elderly were taken into account. The interview protocol was tested through interviews. There are four components that should be adjusted to ensure that the interview protocol is more tailored to the elderly. The scores of the digital test of positive health can be translated into (health care) needs, desires, abilities of cognitive healthy elderly patients using the constructed interview protocol.
