Chedoke McMaster Stroke Assessment (CMSA) 
Training Workshop

Workshop Objectives

The objective of the workshop is to provide the participants with the opportunity to learn to use the CMSA as a clinical or research assessment tool. During the one-day workshop, videoclips and group discussion are utilized to educate the participants about the administrative and scoring guidelines of the Chedoke Assessment. 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. Course participants will receive a comprehensive handout package and the manual. For more information on the Chedoke-McMaster Stroke Assessment please visit the Chedoke Assessment Website.
