Complex injuries and multi-system conditions are terms used for patients with multiple, often interrelated, health issues which require a comprehensive and coordinated rehabilitation approach. Rehabilitation professionals should strive to provide comprehensive person-centred care to patients with challenging, complex injuries and multi-system conditions. Following this approach can lead to positive patient outcomes. Interdisciplinary teamwork, goal setting, communication and function-focused care are all strategies that can be applied to provide timely, coordinated, complex, but effective rehabilitation interventions. This programme will describe complex injuries and conditions, care principles and various rehabilitation strategies that will lead to positive outcomes and improve patient’s quality of life.
