Early Rehabilitation in Conflicts and Disasters Field Handbook
The provision of early rehabilitation in conflict and disaster response is crucial to achieving optimal functioning and community reintegration outcomes in the survivors. This is an emerging area in which rehabilitation professionals face unique challenges with scarce resources that most have never encountered before. The Early Rehabilitation in Conflicts and Disasters field handbook is the product of a highly collaborative process that involved key international organisations and experts with leadership by HI and support of AO, to equip rehabilitation professionals, in particular physiotherapists and occupational therapists, with the knowledge and skills to deliver quality early rehabilitation in highly demanding emergency contexts. ISCoS is pleased to have contributed our expertise to the development and expert review of Chapter Eight Early Rehabilitation of Spinal Cord Injuries and proud to endorse this valuable practical guide.
