Characteristics of community integration programs: Development of measurement tools and determination of national variability among programs

Abstract:
We developed the Community Integration Program Questionnaire, a tool designed to quantify some of the tangible characteristics of community integration programs for people with brain injuries. We then surveyed 49 facility-based outpatient, 30 residential, and 13 home-based programs. There were dramatic differences among programs with respect to staffing, client characteristics, and programmatic qualities. Using cluster and matching analysis, it was determined that overlap among programs with respect to characteristics was such that it would take a large number of client subjects per site to study the effect of program characteristics on outcomes of clients.
