Dr. Allan Kozlowski, assistant professor at Mount Sinai Hospital and secretary of the Measurement Networking Group, has organized a symposium at ACRM to highlight a sophisticated new statistical method for tracking rehabilitation outcomes.
He will present An Introduction to Individual Growth Curve Analysis on 26 October from 1:00 to 5:00 pm (Instructional Course #2949). Individual Growth Curve (IGC) Analysis is suited to examining rehabilitation outcomes by modeling change in individual differences within and between groups over time.
An example of IGC can be seen in:
