Summary: A previously identified predictive model (disability, older age, cold pain thresholds, neck rotation movement, posttraumatic stress symptoms) demonstrates good accuracy to discriminate participants with moderate to severe disability at 12 months after whiplash injury.Abstract: Uncertainty surrounds prognostic factors after whiplash injury.

The tested model was not precise in predicting NDI as a continuous variable.

However, it found good accuracy to discriminate participants with moderate to severe disability at 12 months (area under the receiver operating characteristic curve 0.89 [95% confidence interval 0.84–0.94], What does "Remember me" mean?

The objective of this study was to externally validate this model.

In a multicentre inception cohort study, 286 participants with acute whiplash (I, II or III) were assessed at = 0.50, 95% confidence interval 0.42 to 0.58).
