Community based rehabilitation program in people with musculoskeletal conditions was evaluated using Dartmouth

COOP Functional Health Assessment Charts-WONCA COOP-WONCA charts. The program consisted of educative and

training protocol in a primary healthcare setting. It had two parts, both with six visits, in the first part three times a week

and in the second part once a week. Clients with musculoskeletal conditions N=204 were included if they agreed to take

active part in the rehabilitation process. The first part of the program was completed by 77 clients, and complete program

by 52 subjects. Positive changes on the COOP- WONCA charts were achieved by more than 50% of the subjects that completed

the program, in all categories but Social Activities. The program proved effective in terms of short-term evaluation

with COOP-WONCA charts in those that complete the program. The high dropout rate and long-term efficiency have yet

to be investigated.
