A new podcast featuring Jane Sullivan, PT, DHS, associate professor and assistant department chair in the Department of Physical Therapy and Human Movement Science at Northwestern University, outlines the process a Neurology Section-appointed task force used in developing preferred outcome measures for patients with stroke.
Widespread use of standardized outcome measures is "lacking," says Sullivan, who describes the task force's charges, the framework chosen to assess the outcome measures, and how the task force determined which outcome measures to review. She also illustrates the objectives achieved in the recommendations generated by the StrokEDGE group.
A transcript accompanies the prerecorded podcast. A list of the task force members and the recommended outcome measures are available on the Neurology Section's website.
