Evidence about what works in rehabilitation is improving every day. But that evidence is very slow to enter practice, resulting in inequities in patient outcomes, especially in lower-middle income countries and at a systems level. Rehabilitation is complex, as it involves coordination across multiple roles, settings, systems, rehabilitation specialisations and health professionals.
This course, the first of four, is designed to help create a deliberate space to think about how to plan implementation process efforts to adopt, adapt, spread or sustain new interventions. As rehabilitation is recognised as a complex multi-disciplinary process with many moving parts, within complex multi-level healthcare systems and involving multiple professionals, patients, families and care providers, pre-implementation efforts are more important than ever.
This course aims to overview the steps of pre-implementation to ensure successful adoption of new evidence-based rehabilitation interventions and or practices, especially in low-middle income countries.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content contains the following:
