A portion of this manuscript was presented at the annual Canadian Physiotherapy Association Congress held in St. The results of this study call into question the clinical usefulness of the predictive equations developed for stroke rehabilitation. If standard position is changed, indicate on form.

During assessment, the physiotherapist’s instruction, whether words or gestures, should be clear and concise. In Januaryfollowing confirmation of ethical approval for the present study, additional information sroke extracted from the same patients’ charts by staff from the hospital’s medical records department and added to the database by the current investigative team.

Tasks can only be attempted twice in the Impairment Inventory and once in the Activity Inventory. Second is the Activity Inventory, formerly Disability Inventory, which assesses gross motor function 10 items evaluating rolling, sitting, transferring and standing and walking 5 items [1].

The University of Manitoba Health Research Ethics Board approved access to an anonymized database for this investigation. Reliability Reproducibility of the CMSA has been established, however, chedoke-mcmasteg of all testers during administration varies.

Our sample size was axsessment of convenience, determined by the number of eligible patients in our database. Measuring clinical outcomes is an integral part of evidence-based rehabilitation. Further research to establish predictive models using alternative statistical procedures is warranted.

Because there was no standard protocol for data collection, patients were assessed at different time points including time post stroke and length of time between initial and discharge assessmentproducing a non-homogenous sample. The other 74 patients were included in the data analysis.

The AI consists of two indices: Proceedings of the Canadian Physiotherapy Association national congress. The use of the CMSA to predict outcomes in patients with stroke undergoing rehabilitation was first reported by Gowland in the s. Furthermore, the confidence bands associated with both II and AI scores are too large to be considered clinically useful.


One possible explanation for the large shrinkage value is that there were differences between the two samples of patients e. Japanese Physical Therapy Association; This was accomplished in two steps. The client requires no more help than standby supervision, cueing or coaxing, without physical contact.

Despite efforts to achieve a large sample size, the database was missing data for a number of patients, who were therefore excluded from the analysis. Future research to identify models that rehabilitation professionals can use in predicting outcomes assessemnt individual clients with stroke would facilitate evidence-based practice.

Methodological considerations would sstroke specifying assessment times related to time post stroke, rather than using admission and discharge dates, to increase accuracy of predictions. Most movements become environmentally specific.

Characteristic Summary Value Age Overall, studies confirm that the CMSA yields both reliable and valid results.
