Establishing a prognosis is an important step in treatment planning and decision-making for clinicians, patients and their families, and for other stakeholders including rehabilitation managers and administrators, and payers. However, existing prognostic measures often do not adequately represent the target population, lack evidence for prognostic accuracy, and/or have limited utility for personalized treatment planning and timely decision-making. Prototype individual-level prognostic trajectory models for recovery of mobility and daily activity functioning that conceptually address the noted limitations of exiting prognostic models have recently been developed. Future versions of the models could facilitate personalized treatment planning and timely decision-making for clinicians; patients, their caregivers and family members; and other stakeholders. This presentation will provide
information on prognostically accurate and clinically useful rehabilitation prediction models and the strengths and limitations of instruments for prognosis in rehabilitation. Additionally, strengths and limitations of activity-level prognostic prototype models and implementing prognostic models will also be presented.
