Phase N/A Results

Results

There were no significant differences in the length of hospital stay between patients assigned to ICP management and those assigned to conventional multidisciplinary care. Patients receiving ICP care stayed in the hospital for 5 more days on average (95% CI -14 to 24 days) compared with those receiving conventional multidisciplinary care. Patients receiving conventional multidisciplinary care improved significantly faster between 4 and 12 weeks (median change in Barthel Activities of Daily Living Index 6 versus 2; P<0.01) and had higher Quality of Life scores at 12 weeks (65 versus 59; P=0.07) and 6 months (72 versus 63; P<0.005).
