Lund, Maria Larsson and Lexell, Jan LU (2008) In Journal of Rehabilitation Medicine 40(8). p.659-664
Abstract
Objective: To investigate how persons with late effects of polio perceive their participation and problems with participation in life situations and to determine the association between perceived problems with participation and sex, age, marital status, use of mobility aids and access to instrumental support. Design: Cross-sectional. Subjects: A total of 160 persons with prior polio 6-30 months after an individualized, goal-oriented, comprehensive inter-disciplinary rehabilitation programme. Methods: All subjects answered the Swedish version of the Impact on Participation and Autonomy Questionnaire. Results: A majority of the respondents perceived their participation as sufficient in most activities and 65% of the respondents perceived no... (More)
Objective: To investigate how persons with late effects of polio perceive their participation and problems with participation in life situations and to determine the association between perceived problems with participation and sex, age, marital status, use of mobility aids and access to instrumental support. Design: Cross-sectional. Subjects: A total of 160 persons with prior polio 6-30 months after an individualized, goal-oriented, comprehensive inter-disciplinary rehabilitation programme. Methods: All subjects answered the Swedish version of the Impact on Participation and Autonomy Questionnaire. Results: A majority of the respondents perceived their participation as sufficient in most activities and 65% of the respondents perceived no severe problems with participation. The remaining 35% perceived 1-6 severe problems with participation. All 5 domains of participation were positively correlated with the 9 items for problem experience. Most restrictions in participation were reported in the domains of Family role, Autonomy outdoors, and Work and education. Insufficient instrumental support was most strongly associated with the perception of severe problems with participation. Conclusion: Rehabilitation programmes for persons with late effects of polio need to focus on areas of participation that are perceived as a problem by these persons and to promote access to a supportive environment to enhance their participation.
