Abstract

The purpose of this preliminary study was to investigate the inter-rater reliability among physician, patient, and caregiver ratings on the Hoehn & Yahr (H & Y) and Schwab & England (S & E) rating instruments. We also examined differences in ratings between patients who attended clinic with and without caregivers (spouses and adult children). Patients and caregivers coming for an appointment at Colorado Neurological Institute were asked to independently complete the H & Y and S & E scales. Physicians rated the patients during the exam. In the group of patients who came to clinic with caregivers, there was significant agreement on both the H & Y and S & E (P
