Evolution of Rehabilitation
Advances in healthcare over the past century have enabled people to live longer and to recover from injuries that were previously deadly. With these advances, however, have come disabilities and chronic illness that severely and forever change the way a person interacts in their environment and within the community. The field of rehabilitation arose to help individuals and families incorporate the changes associated with disability and chronic illness into their lives. Rehabilitation is a philosophy, an attitude, and an approach to caring for people with disabilities that improves the quality of their lives and provides a meaningful context in which to live.
Rehabilitation has been defined as a process of helping a person to reach the fullest physical, psychological, social, vocational, avocation and educational potential consistent with his or her physiologic or anatomic impairment, environmental limitations, and desires, and life plans.
Goals of Your Rehabilitation
The goals of your rehabilitation include working towards maximal health through health restoration, health maintenance, and health promotion. All interventions of your disability or chronic disease focus on promoting maximal health, independence, and promote quality of life. Essential to achieving these goals are the collaboration with you, your nurse, your significant others, and other healthcare providers. The rehabilitation methods used are the best evidence based practices that are patient-focused, goal-oriented, and outcome based.
On the rehabilitation unit, an interdisciplinary team model is utilized. The process is naturally a collaborative effort, which places you and your family in the center of the healthcare team. This type of team includes individuals from various disciplines who practice the skills of their discipline to reach a common patient goal together. Team members work collectively and are engaged in problem solving beyond the boundaries of their own discipline. They meet regularly to discuss your progress and adjust the plan of care to meet the needs of you and your family. This provides a comprehensive, consistent, non-fragmented treatment approach and promotes effective outcomes for you.
