Trauma rehabilitation

Man rehabbingIn trauma rehabilitation, we are focused on improving outcomes for patients as they transition across the contiuum of care, from admission to the emergency room to discharge to home.

Current research project:

  • Evaluating ways to improve the continuity of care by having rehabilitation physicians be accessible at both acute and rehab care settings.
  • Optimizing the assessment and treatment of severe injuries to peripheral nerves and the brachial plexus.

  • Using an experience-based co-design approach to develop a cross-continuum peer support program for trauma survivors and preparing it for implementation.
