Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP®)

NCIM now delivers the PGAP® (Progressive Goal Attainment Program) which is a program designed to prevent or reduce the severity of disability that can arise following injury or illness. 


PGAP® involves one-on-one sessions of 1 hour a week usually over a 10 week period.  PGAP® is considered to be one of the most cost effective approaches for reducing disability and fostering return to work.


The PGAP® has been shown to be effective in facilitating return to work in individuals who have sustained musculoskeletal injuries, individuals with chronic low back pain and fibromyalgia, as well as individual with debilitating mental health conditions such as depression and

post-traumatic stress disorder. 


The primary goals of PGAP® are to reduce psychosocial barriers to rehabilitation progress, promote re-integration into life-role activities, increase quality of life, and facilitate return-to-work. These goals are achieved through targeted treatment of psychosocial risk factors, structured activity scheduling, graded-activity involvement, goal-setting, problem-solving, and motivational enhancement.
