  1. Validating screening instruments for neuroepidemiologic surveys : experience in Sicily.

    Article - En anglais

    In a hospital setting in Sicily, we assessed a screening instrument developed for a prevalence survey of parkinsonism, peripheral neuropathies, stroke, and epilepsy.

    The subjects consisted of (1) hospital patients with any of the above-mentioned diseases, to investigate sensitivity; and (2) hospital visitors free of all these diseases, to investigate specificity.

    The standard for comparison was a clinical evaluation based on specified criteria.

    Trained interviewers administered the screening instrument, asking subjects to answer symptom questions and to perform simple physical tasks.
