Rehabilitation should not stop when the disabled person is discharged from hospital, and many neurological patients require ongoing rehabilitation in order to maximize their functional abilities, minimize complications and promote full participation at home and in the community.

This book analyses community rehabilitation needs from many different perspectives, including the views of disabled people, rehabilitation clinicians and service providers. Many examples of community rehabilitation schemes are presented, with evidence for their effectiveness, and case studies are used to highlight the main issues. The authors take an international view, and there are chapters dealing with the disabled child in the community and with neuropsychological rehabilitation.

The first book to examine the growing trend towards community rehabilitation in neurology, it is directed towards all clinicians involved with neurorehabilitation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Community Rehabilitation in Neurology is...a useful and timely addition to the published work. This book will help hospital-based clinicians understand the climate and issues surrounding the delivery of community services to those patients they see only in a hospital setting." Diane Playford, The Lancet, Neurology

"[A] well-written, comprehensive book...One of the book's strongest qualities is its applicability to the work performed in paediatric rehabilitation the world over, benefiting all professionals engaged in rehabilitation, regardless of where they practice. We highly recommend this book." Lucia Willadino Braga, Marc A. Forman, Pediatric Rehabilitation
