The importance of using standardized assessment of stroke impairments, disabilities, and handicaps with good medical evaluation has been emphasized by the AHCPR guidelines. The comprehensive toolbox these authors have developed may provide a useful mechanism to operationalize the AHCPR recommendations. A reference manual with procedures for administering each standardized assessment supports the toolbox. This toolbox system may be accessed and downloaded by visiting the University of Kansas Center on Aging website (http//:www2.kumc.edu/coa). This toolbox system not only may have application for monitoring outcomes for clinical practice but may be useful for research. The toolbox is to be used by individual sites. No data will be sent to the Center on Aging.
