Measurement tools for outcomes must then be designed and tested with respect to their purpose, practicality, construction, standardization, reliability, and validity. This chapter proposes a conceptual model called Challenges to the Quality of Daily Living that is based on the work of Abraham Maslow. While these opportunities and demands are not directly measurable in qualitative or quantitative terms, the underlying factors supporting or forming barriers to health and function are measurable. The Functional Independence Measure FIM and the Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation UDSmr are examined from the perspectives described above, and are found to provide practical measurement for patients undergoing medical rehabilitation for conditions that render them dependent on others for assistance in activities of daily living. The FIM has been shown to be reliable, valid, feasible, practical, and sensitive to clinical change in functional independence at admission, discharge, and follow-up. Use of the FIM and the UDSmr characterizes disability and change in severity through the use of a uniform language, and has important implications for national and international exchange of comparable information concerning outcomes.

Fuhrer Ed. Baltimore: Brookes. Interrater agreement of the seven-level functional independence measure FIM. Despite increased stroke incidence, reduced mortality rates have led to an increase in people living with disabilities.


Therefore, stroke constitutes the leading cause of serious, complex, and long-term adult disability. According to the World Health Organization, 15 million people suffer stroke worldwide annually. Of these, five million die and another five million are permanently disabled 2 , 3 , 4. Patients with chronic stroke are hospitalized during the acute or sub-acute phase, and then receive rehabilitation treatment.

However, after their discharge, they often do not receive continuous rehabilitation treatment in their community. The number of stroke survivors using community-based public health rehabilitation services is also low 5 , 6.

This study followed up hemiplegia patients from Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality who received care from the Home Care Service program.

Hemiplegia patients were enrolled in the rehabilitation program in Bezm-i Alem Foundation University. Rehabilitation of chronic stroke cases was reviewed patients residing in Istanbul.

Our purpose was to create awareness regarding social rehabilitation at the university and local governments, to identify gaps in social rehabilitation, and to increase the effectiveness of social rehabilitation. These forms collected data on patient demographics, FIM scores, concomitant diseases, tobacco and alcohol use, disease duration, and stroke etiology.

In addition to their demographic characteristics age, gender, weight, height, and body mass index [BMI] , the patients were also questioned regarding their occupations, main symptoms, and time to diagnosis. The patients included in this study were between 20 and 75 years of age.

In addition, FIM scores were compared during three months of follow-up. The FIM was designed to quantity physical and cognitive disability and focuses on care take reliability 7.

The main objective for its incident was to create a generic measure that could be administered by clinicians and non-clinicians to assess patients in all age groups with a wide variety of diagnoses 7.

The FIM contains a total of 18 items. The motor and cognitive subscales comprise 13 and five items, respectively 8. The motor subscale collects knowledge regarding self-care, sphincter control, transfer, and locomotion, while the cognitive subscale focuses on communication and social cognition.

All items are scored using a seven-point ordinal scale based on the number of assistance required for the patient to perform each activity 8. Higher FIM scores indicate patients that have a higher level of independence and require a small amount of assistance 8.
