In what diseases can Neuro-QoL be used?

Neuro-QoL measures were developed to be appropriate for a range of neurological conditions. They are not disease-specific measures. They were initially validated in five adult (stroke, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis [ALS]) and two pediatric conditions (epilepsy and muscular dystrophy). They were subsequently expanded for use in traumatic brain injury (TBI) and spinal cord injury (SCI).
