dissertations, PubMed, Embase, Scopus, web of sciences, Cochrane google scholar, SID Magiran databases were searched by two researchers separately until October 2019. Oral abstracts or lectures were removed from the search domain. hand search of studies, a list of sources of highly relevant articles, and key journals were conducted. Finally, studies that focused on assessing care needs in patients with neurological disorders were selected and after studying and extracting the data, the findings were summarized and reported.
Results: Out of 5968 articles found, 1011 duplicate articles were removed and by reviewing the titles and abstracts of the remaining 4957 studies, 370 articles were selected for the full text study, of which only 7 were selected to the final report. Findings indicated that care needs assessment was performed in these studies through the Northwick Park Dependency Score and Care Needs Assessment needs assessment checklist, and semi-structured face-to-face interviews.
