Join us for two AROC Workshops for FIM™ (Sat 25/5) & WeeFIM® (Sun 26/5) Training. Both one day courses are open to Allied Health professionals in the North Queensland region.

The FIM™ instrument is a basic indicator of severity of disability. The functional ability of a patient changes during rehabilitation and the FIM™ instrument is used to track those changes.  Functional change is a key outcome measure of rehabilitation episodes.

The FIM™ instrument comprises 18 items, each of which is assessed against a seven point ordinal scale, where the higher the score for an item, the more independently the patient is able to perform the tasks assessed by that item. Total scores range from 18 to 126. The items are divided into two major groups, the Motor items, of which there are 13, and the Cognitive Items, of which there are 5. The rating scale designates major graduations in behaviour from dependence to independence. The scale provides for the classification of individuals by their ability to carry out an activity independently, versus their need for assistance from another person or a device. If help is needed the scale assesses the degree of that need.
