Abstract

Objective: To examine the perceived clinical relevance, current practice and knowledge of somatosensory testing in three professional groups involvedin the management and rehabilitation of stroke. Design: Structured postal questionnaire sent to therapists and doctors. Subjects: One hundred and eighty occupational therapists from the NationalAssociation of Neurological Occupational Therapists (NANOT), 180 physiotherapists from the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists with an Interestin Neurology (ACPIN) and 360 doctors from the Association of British Neurologists (ABN) and the British Geriatrics Society (BSG). Setting: Hospitals and rehabilitation centres in the UK. Results: Replies were obtained from 84 occupational therapists (47%), 98 physiotherapists (55%) and 78 doctors (22%). Sixty-four occupational therapists (77%), 82 physiotherapists (84%) and 66 doctors (87%) indicated that they routinely performed somatosensory assessment as part of their clinical assessment. The two most commonly used measures were proprioception and light touch. Seventy-eight occupational therapists (93%), 88 physiotherapists (90%) and 67 doctors (91%) regarded sensory assessment as clinically significant in determining prognosis after stroke. Conclusions: Despite published reservations concerning its usefulness and reliability, most therapists and doctors routinely assess somatosensory toss after stroke. All three professions agreed that somatosensory testing presented useful information for prognosis, Furthermore, all professional groups believe somatosensory assessment to be clinically relevant.
