• Purpose of the Working Group
     – Advance community reintegration outcome measurement
       for rehabilitation-related studies by:
             • Exploring International Classification of Health, Disability, and
               Functioning as theoretical framework.
             • Identifying key dimensions.
             • Discussing measurement challenges.
             • Suggesting steps to enhance measurement.

• Relevance
     – Measuring veterans’ community reintegration is important
       for:
             • Developing and evaluating interventions that enhance reintegration.
             • Tracking population health regarding adult life roles.

• Processes to advance measurement of
  veterans’ community reintegration:
       – Identify key aspects that should be measured.
       – Consider role functions specific to veterans and
         servicemembers across the life span.
       – Map existing measures to core sets to understand
         content and coverage of existing tools.
       – Develop new measures to fill gaps.
       – Evaluate measurement approaches.

    • Our intended results include:
           – Recommending policies that would facilitate
             community reintegration research within
             Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
           – Identifying core group of standardized items
             and instruments that can be adopted by VA
             clinicians, administrators, and researchers.

  • For the future, we:
         – Propose research that focuses on outcomes
           measures.
         – Recommend further research to evaluate existing
           and develop new measures.
         – Identify barriers to conduct of outcomes research
           in VA and suggest system changes.
         – Note a need for greater measurement expertise
           within VA.
