Short Description of Instrument
Purpose:
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.
 
Time:
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
