On April 27, CMS updated the printable MDS 3.0 item subsets by including a legal notice. The legal notice states the following:

“Legal Notice Regarding MDS 3.0 - Copyright 2011 United States of America and InterRAI. This work may be freely used and distributed solely within the United States. Portions of the MDS 3.0 are under separate copyright protections; Pfizer Inc. holds the copyright for the PHQ-9 and the Annals of Internal Medicine holds the copyright for the CAM. Both Pfizer Inc. and the Annals of Internal Medicine have granted permission to freely use these instruments in association with the MDS 3.0.”

This was the only change made to the new version, known as version 1.00.3, of the item subsets. You can find these updated item subsets under the “Downloads” section of CMS’ MDS 3.0 Training Materials webpage.
