Two broadly applied systems in the United States, the National Resident Assessment Instrument/Minimum Data Set and the Resource Utilization Groups, have provided new insight into the quality, delivery, and financing of nursing home care. In this article, the authors describe research efforts in eight other nations to translate, validate, and use one or both systems to understand their own long-term care systems. This consortium of studies, using common instruments, provides potential cross-national analyses that capitalize on differences in practice patterns and system designs to address critical policy issues.
