Course content

Rehabilitation aims to lessen the impact of disease and disability on everyday life and to assist people in reaching their fullest potential. It is required for conditions which deteriorate just as much as for those which improve.

The focus of this multidisciplinary group is on the rehabilitation process among adults with any kind of impairment and those in later life. Our research aims to provide the evidence upon which health and social care interventions can be based, to reduce the impact of injury and disease on the lives of people with physical and learning disabilities and their families.

Current research themes include:

  • health of older people
  • community rehabilitation
  • long-term conditions
  • stroke rehabilitation
