OPERATIONAL DEFINITION

A key feature of the Westmead PTA Scale is that it uses an operational definition of PTA. That is, a person is said to be out of PTA if they can achieve a perfect score on the Westmead PTA Scale for 3 consecutive days. PTA is judged to have ended on the first of the 3 consecutive days of perfect recall.
