EnCOR: Enhancing collaboration and connection in neurorehabilitation
Nicola Kayes, Alice Theadom, Christine Cummins, Felicity Bright, Paula Kersten, Richard Siegert, Kathryn McPherson
Funding: AUT PBRF funds
Research tells us that the relationship between the client and the rehabilitation practitioner is a key factor in the success of services however we do not know what the key ingredients of this relationship are. We would like to identify the core components of this therapeutic connection from the perspective of those currently involved in neurorehabilitation. We want to interview people who have been receiving rehabilitation services for a neurological condition and have had at least four sessions with the same rehabilitation practitioner within the current episode within the last six months and their family members. We will also be holding focus groups with rehabilitation practitioners working in neuro rehabilitation.
