Abstract : The purpose of our proposed multicenter prospective cohort study is to address important knowledge gaps on resiliency in the rehabilitation of adults with lower-extremity injuries. Specific aims are to develop and test a resiliency instrument that is relevant to active duty military Service Members. The proposed project will leverage the infrastructure of the Maximizing Outpatient Rehabilitation Effectiveness (MORE) study that is currently being conducted at Brooke Army Medical Center. The first year of the project will focus on selecting items from three well-established resiliency instruments that have been validated in civilian populations. Interviews and focus groups will be conducted in 44 active duty military Service Members. A pre-test in 50 Service Members will finalize the instrument. Testing in 310 Service Members will occur in the second and third year of the project to determine the reliability and construct and predictive validity of the MORE resiliency instrument in active duty Service Members with lower-extremity injury. To date, this project is pending HRPO approval and no research procedures have been conducted.
