Return to work RTW for people with acquired brain injury ABI represents a main objective of rehabilitation: this work presents a strong correlation between personal well-being and quality of life. The aim of this study is to investigate the prognostic factors that can predict RTW after ABI traumatic or non- traumatic aetiology in patients without disorders of consciousness e.g. coma, vegetative or minimally conscious state at the beginning of their admission to rehabilitation. At the end of a 6-month follow-up after discharge, data were successfully collected in 69 patients. The rehabilitation effectiveness functional Recovery between admission and discharge was assessed by Functional Independent Measure FIM gain, through the Montebello Rehabilitation Factor Score MRFS, which was obtained as follows: discharge FIM—admission FIM-Maximum possible FIM—Admission FIM x 100. The cut-off value criterion deriving from MRFS, which helped identify RTW patients, resulted in .659 sn 88.9%; sp 52.4%. Considering the Mini Mental State Examination MMSE and the MRFS data, the multivariable binary logistic regression analysis presented 62.96% of correct RTW classification cases, 80.95% of non-RTW leading to an overall satisfactory predictability of 73.91%. The results of the present study suggest that occupational therapy intervention could modify cut-off in patients with an MFRS close to target at the end of an in-hospital rehabilitative program thus developing their capabilities and consequently surpassing cut-off itself.
