Multi-dimensional measurement of need and outcome in physical disability.
Collaboration between health and social services is important when assessing the needs of clients and evaluating outcomes resulting from planned interventions.
This article looks at the reality of interprofessional collaboration in developing services for people with physical disabilities.
It focuses on the use of formal measurement tools such as the Functional Limitations Profile and discusses the way in which such tools can be used.
The possible mismatch between clients'own perception of need and that of professionals is highlighted.
Furthermore, the use of qualitative research complements understanding, because it allows for contextual understanding of the FLP scores.
