15 Goal Attainment Scaling
Overview of Goal Attainment Scaling
Goal Attainment Scaling is used within a DVA client’s Rehabilitation Plan to determine appropriate goals for the client, measure those goals against a standardised scale and, importantly, measure change and progress in the client’s functioning, employment, social and wellbeing outcomes.
Goal Attainment Scaling is a vital tool in DVA's rehabilitation program, as DVA clients often present with complex physical, psychological and social problems and may require a variety of rehabilitation goals.
Through a client-centred approach to goal development, DVA is able to improve rehabilitation outcomes within the framework of DVA’s whole-of-person model. It enables the comprehensive measurement of outcomes arising from a broad range of medical management, vocational and psychosocial goals, and highlights for the client the broad range of activities that make up a DVA Rehabilitation Plan.
