Abstract

The research problem undertaken was to study how effective the University of Oregon Medical School –Crippled Children’s Division Clinic is by determining how well patients followed through on Clinic recommendations. Three research hypotheses were posed for testing. (1) There is a difference between income and the following of Clinic recommendations. (2) There is a difference between educational levels of fathers and mothers and the following of Clinic recommendations. (3) There is a difference in the level of I.Q. of patients and the following of Clinic recommendations. A random sample of 100 cases was selected from the patients who had been through the Clinic prior to January, 1968. Case records were abstracted from the files of the University of Oregon Medical School –Crippled Children’s Division, prior to personal interviews in the homes with the families using a standard questionnaire. The X² was used in testing the hypotheses and the findings resulted in no statistical difference between the three variables and the criteria of following recommendations. Therefore the null hypotheses were accepted.
