Demographic ageing will lead to increasing pressure on visual rehabilitation services, which need to be efficiently organised in the near future. The Dutch ICF
Activity Inventory (D-AI
) was developed to assess the rehabilitation needs of visually impaired persons. This pilot study tests the feasibility of the D-AI
using a computer-assisted telephone interview.
In addition to the regular intake, the first version of the D-AI
was assessed in 20 patients. Subsequently, patients and intake assessors were asked to fill in an evaluation form. Based on these evaluations, a new version of the D-AI
Mean administration time of the D-AI
was 88.8 (± 41.0) minutes. Overall, patients and assessors were positive about the D-AI
assessment. However, professionals and 60% of the patients found the administration time to be too long. All included items were considered relevant and only minor adjustments were recommended.
The systematic character of the revised D-AI
will prevent topics from being overlooked and indicate which needs have the highest priority from a patient-centred perspective. Moreover, ongoing assessment of the D-AI
will enhance evaluation of the rehabilitation process. To decrease administration time, in the revised D-AI
only the top priority goals will be fully assessed. Using the D-AI
, a rehabilitation plan based on individual needs can be developed for each patient. Moreover, it enables better evaluation of the effects of rehabilitation. A larger validation study is planned.
