Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Prospective memory (PM) error negatively impacts daily function in people with Parkinson’s disease (PD). Sixty-one people with PD reported the frequency and severity of daily PM errors. Instrumental activities of daily living (IADL) PM errors were more frequent, but not more severe than basic activities of daily living (ADL) PM errors. Greater PM error correlated with decreased quality of life (QOL). Intervention should target PM to positively impact function and QOL of people with PD.
