Valid and reliable measures are necessary to provide person-centered care, yet no such measures exist in Korean nursing home settings. This project translated and culturally adapted the Preferences for Everyday Living Inventory (PELI) into Korean, using International Society for Pharmacoeconomics and Outcomes Research guidelines. Face validity was assessed by cognitively capable Korean older adults (n = 10). Participants found the Korean version of the PELI (PELI-K) easy to understand and interpret, and culturally relevant. Implementing the PELI-K in Korean nursing homes, and incorporating preferences into care delivery, will improve quality of care for residents.
