Abstract
Introduction: This case was described about a woman with disability, caused of rheumatoid arthritis. This study focused on what sorts of barriers and problems a disabled woman has to face in practical situation of her life though she has completed her rehabilitation program. Throughout this study, it was suggested that, Bio-psychosocial model would be integrated with the Rehabilitation program to meet the identified needs and to cope with the life of a disabled.
Case Report: A 42-year-old woman who suffered from Rheumatoid Arthritis had taken treatment from Centre for the Rehabilitation of the Paralysed (CRP) several years ago. Nowadays, she is working at CRP by using her wheel chair. However, she needs lots of support at her daily life. Moreover, people are not still too much open to accept the disability and be helpful towards the disabled person. That is why she felt de-motivated sometimes with her life.
Conclusion: There would have some needs of patient, even after completing the Rehabilitation program. Needs assessment helps to determine those needs. Bio-psychosocial model would be helpful to make the rehabilitation program more effective. However, more research-based evidence is necessary and the health professionals need to know the framework and application of the bio-psychosocial model.
