Testing for outcome or performance can take many forms; including multiple iterations of self-reported measures of function (an assessment of the individual's perceived dysfunction) and/or clinical special tests (which are primarily assessments of impairments).
Typically absent within these testing mechanisms is whether or not one can perform a specific task associated with function. This presentation will operationally define and discuss the construct of function, overview the multi-dimensional nature of 'function' as a concept, examine the current evidence for functional testing methods, and propose a functional testing continuum. Attendees will be challenged to think beyond their current methods of function assessment.
