Mayo-Portland Project

Description:
A research evaluation of the Mayo-Portland Adaptability Inventory (MPAI-4) and associated measurement of resource availability and utilisation in brain injury rehabilitation

Rationale:
Outcome measurement in rehabilitation often revolves around measuring functional outcomes of activity and participation

In brain injury rehabilitation, it is often the environment and resources of people with brain injury and their family members that are the focus of interventions

Outcome measures need to accurately measure the range of anticipated impacts provided within brain injury rehabilitation

Participants:
All ABIOS clients

Key Features:  
Use of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health to identify outcome measures relevant to the anticipated impacts of services provided by the Acquired Brain Injury Outreach Service

Incorporation of measures of activity, participation and environment into a service evaluation framework for ABIOS

Examination of the feasibility, sensitivity to change and psychometric properties of the MPAI-4 and resource measures within the context of community rehabilitation for people with brain injury

Evaluation of ABIOS effectiveness in improving individual ability, adjustment and participation as well as resource availability and utilisation

Funding:
Internally funded by ABIOS

Research / Evaluation Strategies:
Pre and post program administration of the MPAI-4 and associated measures of resource availability and utilisation as rated by ABIOS staff

Qualitative and quantitative feasibility analysis of the clinical uptake of the measures

Statistical analysis of the sensitivity of the measures to changes in ability, adjustment, participation, resource availability and utilisation as well as the psychometric properties of the measures

Outputs and Outcomes
Preliminary analyses have been undertaken

Ethical approval has been obtained

Publication is in preparation
