The Parkinson Alliance Quality of Life Scale (PAQLS)

(April 2006) Understanding quality of life for patients with PD, from the perspective of the patient, is of great importance. The Parkinson Alliance Quality of Life Scale (PAQLS) was designed to create a unique and comprehensive self-report measure of QoL for individuals with PD who have and have not undergone Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). The results of this survey provided intriguing perspectives from our participants about motor and non-motor symptoms related to PD, psychosocial factors associated with QoL, and satisfaction with DBS therapy.
