We previously reported that the use of a specifically designed Wearing-Off Questionnaire (WOQ) identified symptoms of wearing-off more frequently than standard assessments conducted by movement disorder specialists during a routine office visit. In the previous study we used a WOQ of 32 symptoms; however this tool was not designed for daily use. In this paper we describe the retrospective development of a simpler, 19-symptom WOQ more suitable for routine clinical use.
