Abstract:

The changing face of rehabilitation structures and practices has meant that measurement of outcomes of rehabilitation has become an absolute necessity. Unfortunately the level of agreement over which measures to use is poor as a result of lack of access to measures and lack of knowledge concerning methods of analysis and interpretation of results. In this paper we report on efforts by the authors to address these issues through the establishment of an online database available over a variety of web devices for the comparative evaluation of rehabilitation outcomes. We discuss the background to the problem the development and use of an initial system and the future directions of the project.
