PGAP (Progressive Goal Attainment Program)™
PGAP™ is the first activity coaching program specifically designed to target psychosocial risk factors for pain and disability. PGAP™ is a standardized program that has been tailored to meet the rehabilitation needs of individuals who are struggling to overcome the challenges associated with a wide range of persistent pain conditions. Referrals are made through LNI to a certified PGAP provider who is either an occupational or physical therapist or a vocational rehabilitation counselor. An initial assessment is scheduled to determine whether an injured worker stands to benefit from this program. If determined to be a good candidate the worker has the choice of whether to participate after watching a short video about the program, and having any questions answered by the activity coach. Injured workers have the opportunity to meet with an activity coach for 30-60 minutes per week for up to 10 weeks to gradually return the worker to pre-injury activities and lifestyle.
