Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

The current guideline criteria for diagnosing people with PD with MCI include neuropsychological tests to assess cognitive functioning. Assessments that reflect real-life confrontations can identify functional cognitive decline. OTs can contribute in implementing evaluations and developing performance-based interventions to promote daily life performance and quality of life and prevent the onset of increased disability.
