Rehabilitation Outcomes: The Right Measures at the Right Time

There is little evidence on the effectiveness of rehabilitation services. Measures are needed for assessing the impact of rehabilitation services as individuals move through a trajectory of recovery. Total joint arthroplasty patients and patients with bone and soft tissue sarcoma receive high levels of rehabilitation services. They will participate in studies of impairments, functioning and participation over the course of recovery. Item response theory methods will be used to refine and scale the measures. Structural equation modeling will test the relationships between the outcomes in the framework of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health.

This project is funded by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, Premier’s Research Excellence Award with 1/3 match from Toronto Rehabilitation Institute (Trainee salary support award) from September 2004-August 2009.
