Goal-Setting

Evaluation

Just two weeks before completing the Rehab-Cycle® Peter asked to be discharged, and he was released against the recommendations of his rehabilitation team. Unfortunately, he was unable to be dissuaded, and a final evaluation was performed just before he left the clinic  – significantly earlier than originally intended.

"Peter asked to be discharged, and he was released against the recommendations of his rehabilitation team."

This evaluation compared the results of the first assessment with the results of final assessment of the intervention targets identified. A visualization of this final evaluation is shown in the ICF Evaluation Display created for Peter. See table 6.

Peter's ICF Evaluation Display indicates that most of the goals set were achieved. Although there was some improvement in all of the intervention targets, the desired values were not reached in a number of intervention targets such as changing body position, the ability to transfer himself, as well as in the critical intervention targets grouped under personal factors, thus not achieving the goal set for these intervention targets. Consequently, the cycle goals of ‘independent transferring while sitting’ and ‘carrying out daily routine’ were not achieved. It is believed that this was a result of his early departure from the program and that had he remained in the program more intervention targets and goals would have been met.

"Although there was some improvement in all of the intervention targets, the desired values were not reached in a number of intervention targets."
