Development of a comprehensive assessment toolbox for stroke.


Journal Article

Comprehensive databases for the assessment of individuals with stroke are essential for clinical management and evaluation of outcomes for quality management and research. The purpose of this article is to describe a comprehensive data system or "toolbox" developed by clinicians and researchers at the Center on Aging at the University of Kansas Medical Center. The choice of assessments for the toolbox resulted from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research Post-Stroke Rehabilitation Guidelines, results of the Kansas City Stroke Study, and the authors' work to develop a new stroke measure-the Stroke Impact Scale.
