LifeTEAM is a leader in delayed recovery for individuals who are struggling with occupational and non-occupational disability following an injury or health event. As an outcomes focused rehabilitation network LifeTEAM delivers Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP®) and other programs throughout the U.S. PGAP® has recently been included as a treatment option for injured workers and disability claimants by a Nationally Recognized set of U.S. Disability Guidelines.
A program delivered by LifeTEAM, PGAP® has been included by the leading U.S. Evidence Based Disability Guidelines as a recommended option when there is access to trained providers. LifeTEAM leads a network of over 300 PGAP® providers across the United States. Please contact us to learn more about the specific disability guidelines info(at)lifeteamhealth(dot)com.
PGAP® is considered the first disability prevention program specifically designed to target psychosocial risk factors for occupational and non-occupational disability. The primary goals of PGAP® are to reduce barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, improve quality of life, and facilitate return-to-work if appropriate.
PGAP has produced positive results for individuals suffering from musculoskeletal conditions, depression, and cancer. One study showed that participation in PGAP increased the probability of return to work following whiplash injury by more than 50%. (Sullivan2, 2006) Findings suggest that PGAP can be a cost-effective means of improving function and facilitating return to work in individuals at risk for prolonged disability. (Sullivan, 2010) (Adams, 2007)
Founded in 2011, LifeTEAM™ programs impact the escalating disability problem in North America. By delivering innovative biopsychosocial rehabilitation programs to workers’ compensation and disability carriers, self-insured employers and third party administrators, LifeTEAM has been able to make a practical difference both economically and functionally.
