Integrating Outcome Measurement into Clinical Practice

PRE-CONFERENCE
Saturday 29 SEPT 2018
8:30 AM – 5:30 PM
Room: Senators Lecture Hall

DESCRIPTION

Determining which rehabilitation outcome assessments to use is challenging. Some are good for making a diagnosis, others are better for capturing change. Knowing which factors are important for selecting the right outcome assessments is important for ensuring data are reliable, valid, fit within clinical workflow, and clinically useful. Outcome measurement is important for demonstrating value and to advance clinical knowledge. The purpose of this instructional course is to provide rehabilitation providers the rationale and guidelines for choosing outcome assessments to use routinely in a variety of clinical settings and develop a framework that facilitates implementation of an outcomes model.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Recognize the value and importance of outcome assessments in routine clinical practice of using classification schemes
  • Determine outcome assessment selection including interpretation of measurement properties
  • Evaluate, interpret and discuss strategies for integration of outcome assessments into clinical practice
  • Increase awareness of how discrete data can be synthesized into knowledge to expedite patient care
