Title: Failure to Complete a Functional Restoration Program for Chronic Musculoskeletal Disorders: A Prospective One-Year Outcome Study
Author: Gatchel, Robert J.; Proctor, Timothy J.; Mayer, Tom G.; Theodore, Brian
Abstract: This large prospective study determined that noncompleters of interdisciplinary tertiary rehabilitation for CDOMDs had comparatively poor socioeconomic outcomes in the year after discharge from treatment, especially on work status and health utilization outcomes. These outcomes are of great relevance to societal, medical, and indemnity costs and future worker productivity. Several risk factors of possible importance in identifying potential noncompleters early in the treatment program were identified that may yield more effective interventions tailored to maintain compliance and decrease the percentage of drop-outs.
