The Non-Motor Fluctuation Assessment (NoMoFA) Questionnaire is an assessment tool that facilitates the identification and quantification of severity of both static and fluctuating non-motor symptoms (NMF) that occur in Parkinson's disease. An initial version of the scale was developed following the FDA guidance on PRO development and validation. The current version was further validated and found to have good clinimetric properties with acceptable item utility, floor/ceiling effects, internal consistency, test-retest stability, construct validity, concurrent validity and scaling (via item response theory analyses).
