Products|Rehabilitation care

In many health systems, rehabilitation care is unique in that it is an element of many other sectors. Care is often provided across a range of settings (e.g., clinics that clients visit or hospitals where patients stay when recovering from a major accident) and providers (e.g., physiotherapists that help clients in dealing with back or shoulder pain). Furthermore, its focus may be outside of what is typically understood to be the health system (e.g., on children and youth with physical, communication or developmental challenges, on adults with automobile accident-related injuries, and on adults with work-related injuries or diseases). As such, in dealing with issues related to rehabilitation care, policymakers and stakeholders are often faced with challenges that are cross-sectoral, and that intersect with social systems. Read our products below for evidence and insights about how the health system building blocks are used to provide care in the rehabilitation care sector.
