Rehabilitation Checklist

J. Douglas Salmon Jr.


The RCL helps you accurately determine the needs of clients who are recovering from injuries and illness with cognitive, physical, or emotional symptoms. Intended for use by rehabilitation professionals, rehabilitation caseworkers, and vocational and physical rehabilitation personnel, the RCL checklist is a practical and effective instrument that helps you understand the impact a clients injury is having on their life. By providing a strong focus on the client’s needs, RCL findings enhance and expedite the rehabilitation process.

How to Use the Assessment
The RCL is a 50-item self-report checklist. It is available in handscored format with MHS QuikScore™ Forms. Respondents are asked to indicate what prevents or discourages them from returning to their regular life roles. They are also asked to rate the five most important items in priority. There is a Total Rehabilitation subscale for all items chosen and client endorsements or perceived disability relative to varied life roles. Finally, clients are asked to indicate whether their emotional and physical conditions have improved or worsened, and when they expect their life to return to normal. Several subscales have cutoff scores indicating psychological risk factors. A score for each scale is produced, along with a Total Rehabilitation score.
