Case 8 Discussion

  1. 1. Case Study 8: Lower Moderate DisabilityThe patient is independent, can take care ofhimself and go out alone. He therefore is notin the SEVERE DISABILITY category. Hehas not resumed his studies, which means aGOS rating of MODERATE DISABILITY.C. Upper Moderate: Work capacity: Reduced Social activities: Resumed less than half as often as pre-injury Disruption or Strain: Frequent (once a week or more but tolerable)
  2. 2. Case Study 8: Lower Moderate DisabilityD. Lower Moderate: Work capacity: Unable to work or only able to work in sheltered workshop Social activities: Unable or rarely to participate Disruption or Strain: Constant (daily and intolerable)He is not able to study, even at a reduced level. Thiswould make the rating Lower Moderate on the GOS-E.
  3. 3. Case Study 8: Lower Moderate DisabilityAdditional Considerations: For a student the occupational status is evaluated through asking about the ability to take up studies again If that is not possible or if a much easier program is chosen that would lead to a rating of MODERATE DISABILITY
