The objective of this study was to determine the pharmacokinetic comparability of 84 µg ipratropium bromide HFA-134a inhalation aerosol and 84 µg ATROVENT® CFC Inhalation Aerosol in COP...
Comprehensive symptom assessment is crucial for symptom management. The Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale Short Form (MSAS-SF) has been validated for symptom assessment in cancer patients, but there i...
The Edmonton Symptom Assessment System (ESAS) is a widely used multi-symptom assessment tool in cancer and palliative care settings but its psychometric properties have not been widely tested using mo...
The Memorial Symptom Assessment Scale (MSAS) is a self-rating instrument for the assessment of symptom distress in cancer patients. The Spanish version of the MSAS has recently been validated. However...
As current treatments of cirrhotic ascites are not associated with survival benefit, symptom relief is the major therapeutic end point. We developed a questionnaire (Ascites-Q; modified polycystic liv...
Esophageal multichannel intraluminal impedance-pH monitoring has become one of the preferred tests to correlate observed reflux-like behaviors with esophageal reflux events. The Gastroesophageal reflu...
A scale comprising 18 symptom constructs chosen to represent relatively independent dimensions of manifest psychopathology. The initial intended use was to provide more efficient assessment of treatment response in clinical psychopharmacology research; however, the scale was readily adapted to other uses.

Evaluation of manifestations of disease.
Systematic identification of a population's needs or the assessment of individuals to determine the proper level of services needed.
Evaluation procedures that focus on both the outcome or status (OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT) of the patient at the end of an episode of care - presence of symptoms, level of activity, and mortality; and the process (ASSESSMENT, PROCESS) - what is done for the patient diagnostically and therapeutically.
Evaluation and measurement of nutritional variables in order to assess the level of nutrition or the NUTRITIONAL STATUS of the individual. NUTRITION SURVEYS may be used in making the assessment.
