In this course we will examine rehabilitation infrastructures. There is no single way to develop a rehabilitation service and the physical base, team, structure, scope and range of services provided will vary. We will consider the range of rehabilitation infrastructures within the global context and consider the rehabilitation team, their individual roles and how they come together to work as a team. This course will outline some of the possibilities for the organisation of services and discuss the merits and drawbacks of different structures.
The aim of this course is to understand the different types of rehabilitation services, recognising how they are structured and function differently both in terms of teams, phases, settings and range of services provided.
This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:
- The Rehabilitation Team
- Levels of Care
- Rehabilitation Phases and Settings
- Rehabilitation Contexts
- Adapting Rehabilitation Service
