Background: Although early detection of elderly rehabilitation patients at risk of loosing their function and the implementation of an intervention is important to delay the process of functional decline, little information about process of change in physical function in elders who are admitted to chronic rehabilitation hospitals has been provided. Purpose: Analyze the predictive capability of factors associated with changes of physical function in relation to biological, psychological, and social conditions. Identify the structure of the relationships among variables in chronic rehabilitation patients aged 65 years and over using patients’ medical records and the Minimum Data Set. Research Questions: The pilot study addresses the following research questions: 1. For elderly patients admitted to a chronic rehabilitation facility, do MDS factors predict physical function at discharge? 2. For elderly patients admitted to a chronic rehabilitation facility, do admission MDS factors of baseline physical function, falls, urinary incontinence, pressure ulcer, nutritional status, pain, cognitive status, mood state, and social support predict change in physical function? 3. Does amount of rehabilitation therapy moderate the effects of predictors on change in physical function? Sample: 60 patient records of subjects aged 65 years or older in a skilled nursing center was drawn from all patients during the period of January 1, 2000 to March 31, 2001. All patients were “capable of independent decision making that was reasonable and consistent,” an item that was completed in every MDS assessment. Data Analysis: Multiple regression analysis to test MDS factors predicting physical function at discharge. Multiple regression analysis to test MDS factors predicting change in physical function. Two hierarchical regression equations including interaction term to test moderating effects of rehabilitation therapy. Results: In Process. AN: MN030267
