Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder. The Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS) is the gold standard for quantifying the effects of PD. The COPM is a client-centered approach, better suited to understanding the impact of PD on client occupational performance. This study supports the use of the COPM as a means to identify challenges in occupational performance that are not otherwise identified through the UPDRS.
