REHAB: a measure of psychiatric disability

J.P. Wilken, M. van der Gaag

This article describes the REHAB, a scale with an international reputation and capable of assessing the behaviour of patients with a chronic psychiatric disorder. In 1994 the Dutch version of the REHAB was published. Reliability and factor structure were calculated on data of 1415 patients. Some validity research is published while other studies are in progress. The REHAB is a reliable and valid scale which can serve many purposes.
