British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine release Vocational Rehabilitation Guidelines.
The British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine has released their Vocational Rehabilitation Guidelines.
This brief guidance is very timely because the vocational rehabilitation challenges to health care systems including the NHS, have never been greater. The guidance is slanted toward the medical clinician as might be expected from the BSRM, but the principles and guidance are part of the universal language of rehabilitation and the need for a multidisciplinary approach and teamwork are appropriately emphasised.
