Additional Information

There is a difference between self-reported outcomes measures and performance-based ones. Performance-based assessments are directly observed and scored. The time required to perform and calculate even a few tests can be a deterrent for many therapists

Selecting performance-based tests that are relevant to the patient’s loss of function may serve as motivators and markers for patient functional improvement. Performance based tests immediately reveal to both the patient and therapists the effectiveness of the intervention.

If you would like to take the hassle and headache out of functional outcome testing and documentation the  Quick Start Guide to Functional Performance Testing is just what you need.   This easy to use guide will help you be on your way in no time to a practical, time saving approach to functional outcome testing.
