Evidence Based Outcome Assessment

Course Description

This two hour course focuses on using both patient-based and doctor-based outcome assessment tools that can be used in every day practice (e.g., NPS, PSFS, functional questionnaires, rehabilitation endurance testing). Each type of measurement is described, as well as how to interpret them and the state of evidence supporting each one. A variety of ways to utilize them is suggested, including documenting improvement, establishing initial severity, and helping in apportionment calculations.
