MDS Rating Scales Program

The MDS Rating Scales Program was developed to support the Society’s efforts and management of MDS-owned rating scales. All rating scale activities are managed under the MDS Rating Scales Program including scale licensing, translation, marketing, education and training, and new scale development.


MDS-Owned Rating Scales 

The following scales and questionnaires are owned and licensed by the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society.
