Abstract

A model for the assessment of eating problems in patients with Parkinson's disease was constructed on the basis of literature about eating and Parkinson's disease. The model is based on the World Health Organization's classification of disabilities and handicaps and on the Erikson theory of ‘eight stages of man’.
