Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This research examined how client and healthcare factors affected UE outcomes. A quantitative study was conducted with consecutive sampling of more than 500 participants with UE conditions over an 18-month period. UE therapy outcomes were assessed every four weeks using GROC and QuickDASH scores, both of which improved significantly. This study can inform OT’s working with UE conditions about factors that can impact decisions regarding treatment planning and implementation.
