Short Description of Instrument
The template stroke adjudication form from the REasons for Geographic And Racial Differences in Stroke (REGARDS) study provides a systematic way to collect data on stroke presence and subtype.
The form was developed in conjunction with the Neurology group at Cincinnati and provides a framework for dual review and resolution of discordant adjudications to determine the presence and subtype of stroke.
The assessment time is variable, as it requires the review of medical records describing the actual event. It could vary between as few as 3 minutes, or as much as 30 minutes.
Comments/Special Instructions
This form has been utilized in a retrospective epidemiologic study of stroke.
Scoring and Psychometric Properties
Scoring: Scoring is based on the determination if 'stroke' is or not present, and if 'stroke' is present it further defines the stroke subtype.
Psychometric Properties: N/A
