Therapeutic interventions occur as early as possible in the recovery continuum. Rehabilitation provides a multidisciplinary team approach that is driven by the needs of the individual across different health and non-health disciplines.
- Recovery refers to the process of returning towards a pre-morbid state or better.
- Adaptation includes changing what or how we do things to complete a task or process successfully, as well as psychosocial adjustment.
- Compensation refers to using an alternate strategy to achieve the same outcome.
- Prevention has a key role in minimising the risk of adverse events or poor outcomes.
Specialised rehabilitation programs for people with severe and very severe TBI are provided in different health and non-health environments across the recovery pathway.
