Outcome Evaluation

© Patient monitoring should involve a regular systematic evaluation of efficacy and adverse events, referral to appropriate specialists, and patient education.

Evaluate the clinical outcomes of treatment by using the UPDRS. In addition, periodically ask patients to record the amount of on and off time they have with and without dyskinesias in a diary. There are a variety of scales that can be used to assess QOL, depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders. Patients with PD cannot be cured; but treatment can delay the progression of symptoms and improve QOL. Delaying the patient's admission into a nursing home is a good outcome.
