Course Summary

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. The Current research interests include: health of older people, community rehabilitation, long-term conditions and stroke rehabilitation. Careers support for research staff and postgraduate research students is available on an individual basis and through a range of career management workshops delivered in collaboration with the Graduate School and Graduate Centers.
