NIS - Neurological Impairment Scale
In neurological rehabilitation, patients can be presented with diverse combinations of physical, cognitive, communicative and behavioural impairments, which may impact on rehabilitation potential. A standardised assessment of neurological impairment may provide an opportunity to control differences in case-mix and so assist interpretation of functional gains in different populations.
The NIS forms part of the standard minimum dataset for the UK Functional Assessment Measure (UK FIM+FAM). It records severity of functional impairment (rated 0-3) across 13 domains mapped onto the International Classification of Functioning (ICF). The score range is 0-50.
