The purpose of our 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 focused on selecting items from three well-established resiliency instruments that have been validated in civilian populations. Interviews and focus groups were conducted in up to 28 active duty military Service Members. Currently, a pre-test of the MORE resiliency instrument in 60 Service Members is being conducted which will finalize the instrument. The next phase of the research will involve testing the MORE resiliency instrument in 310 Service Members to determine reliability and construct and predictive validity of the instrument in active duty Service Members with lower-extremity injury. This project has HRPO approval and has enrolled 41 out of 60 participants into the pre-test phase of the project.
