Acronym: SCOPA-Sleep; SCOPA-S
Authors: Marinus J, Visser M, Stiggelbout AM, Lammers GJ, van Hilten JJ
The SCOPA-SLEEP is a reliable and valid patient-completed instrument for assessing nighttime sleep (5 items) and daytime sleepiness (6 items) in patients with Parkinson disease as well as others.
The development of the SCOPA-SLEEP is part of a larger research project, the SCales for Outcomes in PArkinson’s disease (SCOPA), in which practical and clinimetric sound instruments for all relevant regions in PD are selected or developed. The SCOPA instruments were originally developed in the Dutch language.
