Training Workshop for the Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment (CMSA)

The objective of the workshop is to provide the participants with the opportunity to learn to use the measure as a clinical or research assessment tool. Data from our research has indicted that this training workshop is an effective method to train users. Our research into the training of users continued this year and we have just completed a study that indicates that participants who attend the workshop via teleconferencing do as well as persons who attend the face-to-face workshop.

During the one-day workshop, we use videos and group discussion to educate the participants about the administrative and scoring guidelines of the CMSA. Lectures include information about the measure’s development and psychometric properties, and its clinical application. At the end of the workshop, the scoring competency of the participants will be tested. All participants will receive written feedback regarding their performance on the test. Those who meet the scoring criterion will receive a certificate of scoring competency. The letters are distributed within four to six weeks after the workshop.
