SMART is a comprehensive tool that has been developed and refined since its conception 29 years ago and has been proven successful as an assessment for PDOC both in clinical and medico-legal practice. This is largely due to the continued steadfast belief in, and adherence to, the values of SMART's specific procedures such as the need for mandatory assessor training, assessment over time, family/team involvement, and responsiveness to current thinking and practice. The new concept of a SMART profile, which can be applied across findings from formal assessment, family and team perspectives and other assessment tools, to measure the patient's status at any time after assessment and treatment, can help to guide the care and rehabilitation of the person in PDOC. Further research is being carried out by SMART assessors worldwide to continue to evaluate the efficacy and value of this unique tool. SMART continues to provide a valuable and comprehensive assessment and treatment programme, to be used alongside other existing assessment tools, which can contribute to the lead physician's diagnosis, guide the team's intervention, and support the family's role in the future.
