Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Individuals with PD often experience cognitive deficits that can cause functional limitations and reduced quality of life. Cognitive self-efficacy (CSE), the belief in one’s own cognitive capacities, may impact how a person with PD performs and participates in cognitively challenging occupations or responds to cognitive interventions. Investigating CSE among individuals with PD would be important to effectively address functional cognitive performance and improve quality of life.
