Prediction of Patients' Progress in Post-Acute Rehabilitation Based on Family Environment at the Time of Admission

Abstract:
The purpose of the current study is to determine the relationship of family functioning to patients' ability to complete a post-acute rehabilitation program, and to their outcome following participation in the program. Information on the family systems functioning and caregivers' distress will be collected within 2 weeks of admission to the program. Functional assessment of disability and handicap will take place within 2 weeks of admission and approximately 1 month after discharge. Regression models will be constructed to predict admit to discharge change scores from demographic characteristics, injury characteristics, and the family variables.
