Complex Adjustment to Physical Injury in Rehabilitation: Translating knowledge of resource, support and learning needs of staff into best practice training and clinical care

About the Project

Staff working in rehabilitation settings are often exposed to complex and challenging client behaviour yet report feeling under-supported in this clinical area.  This project will provide an understanding of the client behaviours of most concern for rehabilitation staff and will quantify the resource, support and learning needs of staff. 

A Research Assistant has been engaged and a systemic review is underway.  The survey for participants is being developed.

This project will inform future best practice clinical care models, particularly for individuals who experience adjustment to injury that may be complicated by physical, social, behavioural and psychological rehabilitation challenges or setbacks.

The anticipated benefits are improved patient outcomes and reduced duration of stay in hospital.
