A Systematic Review: Evaluating the Effectiveness of Cognitive Standardized Assessments Following Stroke in Acute Care
Objectives of Presentation:
Upon conclusion of this presentation, participants will be able to:
• Identify valid, reliable, and sensitive standardized cognitive assessments found within our systematic review that can be utilized within the acute care setting with adults following stroke.
• Describe how the current literature presented from this systematic search of standardized cognitive assessments influences safe discharge planning in acute care.
• Discuss the feasibility of implementing standardized assessments into daily practice.
What is the evidence supporting the use of standardized cognitive assessments in acute care for patients who have experienced a stroke?
• Databases: CINAHL and PubMed; Searched completed with population and outcome terms (i.e. cognitive, stroke, CVA)
• The PRISMA diagram was used and 9 out of the 153 articles were used for our systematic review based off of our inclusion/exclusion criteria
• Appraisal of articles: Quality Appraisal for Clinical Measurement Research Evaluation11
• Appraisal of assessments: Adapted Outcome Measure Rating11
Psychometrics Properties Defined:
• Reliability: the overall consistency of a measure
• Inter-rater reliability: assesses the degree of agreement between two or more raters in their appraisals
• Internal consistency reliability: assesses the consistency of results across items within a test
• Test- retest: is a measure of how consistent the results of a test are over time
• Validity: refers to the extent to which a study actually captures or measures what it claims to examine
• Sensitivity: refers to the ability of a tool to detect a disease or condition when it is actually present
• Specificity: refers to the ability of a tool to exclude a condition when it is not present16
