Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

We introduced the COPM to guide our multidisciplinary polytrauma rehab team’s efforts in order to focus on client-identified goals and more cohesive client-centered care. Paired sample t-tests conducted for our 78 participants revealed significant functional improvement (t = -13.23, p < 0.001) and improvement in satisfaction with performance (t = -14.36, p < 0.001) from admission to discharge. Team members agree that the instrument supports more cohesive and client-centered care.
