Introduction[edit | edit source]
A number of PT standards are related to the rehab cycle of an individual patient or service user.
See the tools and documents accompanying different steps of the rehab cycle.
Assess and Analyse[edit | edit source]
Outcome Measures[edit | edit source]
Outcomes measures for an individual user must be chosen according to their health condition and rehabilitation goals. There are generic outcome measures that should be performed with each user. We advise to use the WHODAS for this purpose.
For more consistency we also advise a few simple outcomes measures for the following health conditions and clinical pictures :
- Lower limb conditions (due to amputation, fracture, stroke, incomplete SCI, Polio, old age, etc.)
- Upper limb conditions (due to amputation, fracture, stroke etc.)
- Any condition
Note - You are encouraged to individually select and use additional outcome measures for and with each user. Remember: measuring outcome is not a goal in itself (it's the outcome that counts, not the measuring) – keep it short and simple!
