This research examined how client and health care factors affected OT outcomes for clients. A quantitative study was conducted with consecutive sampling of more than 200 participants with upper extremity (UE) conditions over an 18-month period. UE therapy outcomes were assessed every 4 weeks using Global Rate of Change (GROC) and QuickDASH scores, which both improved significantly. This study can inform OTs working with outpatient clients about factors that can affect decisions regarding treatment implementation.
