Panel Recommendations for Assessing Tardive Dyskinesia

A panel addresses the gap of knowledge for providers around the use of standardized measures to assess the functional impact of tardive dyskinesia (TD) in a routine clinical practice setting. Key points found include assessing social, physical, vocational, and psychological functioning to determine the impact that TD is having on a patient’s quality of life. These should be conducted at every patient visit, with also considering the experiences of the patient’s caregivers and family.
