Abstract:The management of spasticity in specialist clinic has not been evaluated objectively. One of the barriers to conducting an audit is the lack of a robust patient-centred assessment framework. The aim of this study was to audit the existing patient notes and from this develop a patient-centred assessment framework that provides objective data that can be used to audit the service.
