Abstract

Date Presented 4/9/2016

The National Institutes of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) is an acutely based measure purported to be associated with long-term outcomes and is increasingly being used in chronic trials. The study objective was to determine the concurrent validity of the NIHSS with the Stroke Impact Scale, a previously validated measure in chronic stroke.
