Abstract

The Northwick Park Dependency Score (NPDS) has been shown to be valid, reliable and practical to use. It was designed to be used together with a short set of additional questions to inform care needs in the community and facilitate discharge planning. To develop a conversion formula to translate information derived from the NPDS into a generic assessment of care needs in the community -- the Northwick Park Care Needs Assessment (NPCNA) -- and to evaluate its potential as a directly costable measure of outcome in rehabilitation. An inpatient neurorehabilitation unit for young patients with brain injury. Part 1, DEVELOPMENT: For each task in the NPDS, a set of assumptions was developed to reflect the number of people, the time taken and the frequency of help required. Tasks were collected into a daily timetable and minimum and maximum allocations made for each time slot. From this the weekly care hours can be calculated. A range of care package categories and their approximate costs were identified, and a simple set of criteria developed with experienced community care planners to determine the circumstances under which each category is applied. Part 2, EVALUATION: The assumptions and derived care package were evaluated in a pros...Continue Reading
