Onset and persistence of person-perceived participation restriction in older adults: a 3-year follow-up study in the general population

Onset and persistence of person-perceived participation restriction in older adults: a 3-year follow-up study in the general population Thumbnail


Abstract

Participation restriction is defined as "problems an individual may experience in involvement in life situations" and refers to the personal and societal consequences of health conditions. There is a growing interest in participation restriction because (i) problems with work or looking after others may be more concerning to individuals than the signs and symptoms of health conditions and (ii) even when poor health persists, participation may still be maintained. The natural history of participation restriction in the general population is unknown and the aim of this report is to describe change in status of person-perceived participation restriction over three years in community-dwelling adults aged 50 years and over.
