Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP)
What is it?
The primary goals of PGAP are to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, incease quality of life, and facilitate return to work. These goals are achieved through targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors, structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal-setting, problem-solving, and motivational enhancement.
Process of Treatment
In the initial weeks of the Program, the focus is on developing structured activity schedule to assist the client in resuming activities that have been adversely impacted by injury or illness.
What is unique about PGAP?
The Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP) is the first disability prevention program specifically designed to garget psychosocial risk factors for disability. Psychosocial factors were chosen as targets of the intervention on the basis of emerging research supporting their relevance to return-to-work outcomes and their amenability to change through intervention. PGAP is a life-role re-integration Programthat has been tailored to mee the rehabilitation needs of individuals who are struggling to overcome the challenges associated with a wide range of debilitating health and mental health conditions.
Essential Features of PGAP
An initial screening determines whether a client is a suitable candidate for PGAP. There are videos and a workbook that serves as the platform for the implementation of many of the intervention components of the Program and also serves to maximize fidelity to treatment protocol. The client and physiotherapist meet on a weekly basis, for approximately 1 hour for a maximum of 10 weeks.
