What is the Ampac?

The AMPAC is an objective tool that can be used to measure functional status in the. inpatient setting. Our study aimed to test the ability of the acute hospital AMPAC score to predict. discharge outcomes from acute rehabilitation. Our results show that higher acute care AMPAC scores.

What is the Ampac assessment?

The original AM-PAC™ is used with a variety of diagnoses and patient populations to measure basic mobility (with and without a stair-climbing option), daily activity, and applied cognitive functions. The AM-PAC™ measures aspects such as difficulty, assistance, and limitations in activities of daily living.

What is a 6 Click score?

“6-Clicks” scores obtained at initial visits by physical therapists or occupational therapists and patients’ discharge destinations were used to develop and validate receiver operating characteristic curves for predicting discharge destination.

What is a click score?

One “6-Clicks” form assesses basic mobility function, and another form assesses daily activity function. 25. Each item is scored from 1 to 4 on the basis of the amount of difficulty a patient has or how much help is needed from another person in completing the task. Lower scores equate to lower levels of function.

What is the criteria for inpatient rehab?

Symptoms must have persisted for at least a month or have occurred repeatedly over a longer period of time. The individual must be medically stable and not in active withdrawal. Detoxification must precede inpatient or residential rehab if necessary.

What is the AM-PAC mobility short form score?

AM-PAC Inpatient Mobility Short Form: (Hoyer et al., 2017; n=118; mean age = 56.6) 4-point ordinal scale, with a raw score range from 6-24. A score of 1 indicates that the participant was unable to perform the task and a score of 4 indicates the participant was independent in completing the task.

How is am-PAC useful for discharge recommendations?

A standardized assessment of patients’ function could be useful for discharge recommendations. Objectives: The study objective was to determine the accuracy of “6-Clicks” basic mobility and daily activity measures for predicting discharge from an acute care hospital to a home or institutional setting.

What are the results of AM-PAC functional assessment?

Results: Areas under the receiver operating characteristic curves for basic mobility scores were 0.857 (95% confidence interval [CI]=0.852, 0.862) and 0.855 (95% CI=0.850, 0.860) in development and validation samples, respectively.

What does am PAC stand for in medical category?

Key Descriptions AM-PAC can be a patient- or clinician-reported measure. In each domain, AM-PAC scores have a mean of 50 and a standard deviation of 10. AM-PAC Activity Domains: 1) Applied Cognitive
