Abstract


Context: During the rehabilitation process, patients’ adherence may be a key factor in determining the length, effectiveness and success of the overall recovery. There currently exists a scale for over-adherence and under-adherence, however no one scale exists that measures both collectively. Objective: To create and validate a measure of adherence to sport injury rehabilitation. Design: Observational; part of a larger study. Setting: University. Participants: Participants are eligible to participate in this study if they are at least 18 years of age and have completed rehabilitation for a sport-related injury. Interventions: Following IRB approval, data will be collected by paper form. Main Outcome Measures: The Sport Injury Rehabilitation Adherence Scale is a 3-item measure in which participants’ intensity of completion of rehabilitation exercises, frequency of following instructions and advice, and receptivity to changes in rehabilitation are rated on a 5-point Likert-type scale (SIRAS; Brewer et al, 2000). The Rehabilitation Adherence Measure for Athletic Training (RAdMAT; Granquist et al., 2010) is a 16-item questionnaire with three subscales: the Attendance/Participation subscale contains 5 items, the Communication subscale contains 3 items, and the Attitude/Effort subscale contains 8 items; items ask participants to rate each statement on a 4-point Likert scale. The Rehabilitation Overadherence Questionnaire (ROAQ; Podlog et al., 2013) is a 10-item measure with two subscales. The Ignore Practitioner Recommendations subscale contains 6 items following the statement, “How frequently do you...” and asks participants to respond on a 5-point Likert scale. The Attempt and Expedited Rehabilitation subscale contains 4 items following the statement “In thinking about my rehabilitation I...” and asks participants to respond on a 5-point Likert scale. Descriptive statistics and exploratory factor analyses will be conducted. Results: Still in progress. Existing self-report measures of rehabilitation adherence do not capture the full-scope of adherence behaviors.
