  1. Four methods for characterizing disability in the formation of function related groups.

    Article - En anglais

    The Functional Independence Measure-Function Related Groups (FIM-FRGs) were developed to classify medical rehabilitation inpatients into homogeneous groups based on length of stay (LOS).

    Patients are first grouped into clinically relevant rehabilitation impairment categories, then by functional status, as expressed by the FIM, and in certain cases by patient age.

    The statistical approach used to form the final groupings was a recursive partitioning algorithm applied to the FIM scores and patient age within impairment category.
