Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

This study examines the use of a performance-based assessment to detect functional hand deficits in persons with schizophrenia. The Jebsen Hand Function Test may have value as an objective measure of hand function in this population, allowing occupational therapists to provide more comprehensive treatment.
