Effect of post-acute rehabilitation services on healthcare outcomes for multiple sclerosis patients

Takeaway

  • In persons with multiple sclerosis (PwMS) those who used more rehabilitative services in the post-acute care setting had a higher probability of being successfully discharged to the community and experienced functional improvement after adjustment for major confounders.

Why this matters

  • Information on the effectiveness of rehabilitation is crucial for clinicians and health planners to guide appropriate rehabilitation service delivery following an acute hospitalization in PwMS.
