Currently we use a 2-page questionnaire over the phone to obtain mRS at 90 days. We would like to switch to the simplified mRS questionnaire over the phone that has been validated in Bruno et al. 2010 (Stroke, Bruno et al. 2011 (Stroke, Dennis et al. 2012 (Stroke, and Bruno et al. 2013 (Clinical Rehabilitation). Does it matter which way we obtain the mRS as long as it is done by trained personnel?)))

Answer:

The abstraction guidelines for this data element do not get into appropriate training of personnel. That is a decision for your stroke team / HCO. The focus of CSTK-02 mRS a 90 Days is that a mRS score is obtained and documented within the timeframe of 75 to 105 days post-discharge. Scores may be obtained in person or over the telephone.
