The applicability of a model of appraisal and coping was studied in vocational rehabilitation patients (n=31 : 16 men, 15 women) ; the selection of patients aimed at obtaining a representative patient group for studying coordinated rehabilitation within various health care districts in southern Sweden.
There were four phases of data collection and model adjustment.
An initial, semi-structured interview concerned various key topics (program evaluation ; causal attribution regarding the problem or disease ; life-crises, threats, mobbing and unjust treatment ; feeling of control ; current situation ; future ; how the interview was experienced).
The second phase involved a questionnaire study of hypochondriacal and depressive symptomatology, the third the analysis of patient records, and the fourth outcome data on sickness allowances and disability pensions at a 2-year follow-up.
The results indicate the importance for rehabilitation of attending to motivational factors that influence the patients'coping strategies and appraisal, and to cultural (immigrant) and gender perspectives.
