Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

The study proposes the construct of energy depletion in people with Parkinson’s disease (PwPD) and evaluates its relationship with activity retention. PwPD with more fatigue and sleepiness retained fewer activities. Important to occupational therapy practice is that the direction of causality may be bidirectional.
