Conclusions: The meaning of rehabilitation in acute care is shaped by a range of cultural, contextual and systemic influences. Recognising these influences, and subsequent challenges to rehabilitation ideals, can encourage professionals to work towards meaningful change.Implications for RehabilitationA reductionist version of rehabilitation was evident within this context which placed value on physical improvement, achieving optimum safety and led by physiotherapy.This version of rehabilitation was unsatisfactory to occupational therapists and physiotherapists in this setting and different to their ideals.Where rehabilitat...

[The Conversation Africa] The study of anatomy has been the foundation for the training of students in medical and allied health sciences - dentistry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, nursing and medical science - for hundreds of years. To most teachers of human structural anatomy, knowledge of this complex subject is inseparably linked to dissection of the human body. Dissection remains a fundamental aspect of anatomy and is considered to be the "gold standard" for teaching human anatomy in many parts of the world.

A question I’ve asked myself many times! As a small profession with a long history (as long as physiotherapy, TBH), it does seem odd that there are many, many pain rehabilitation services where never an occupational therapist has darkened the door. Some of the reasons lie within the profession: in general, occupational therapists are busy being clinicians and have little time for research. In New Zealand, few occupational therapists pursue higher degrees, and many avoid statistical analyses, experimental design, randomised controlled studies. In fact, some occupational therapists have argued that the tailored appr...

Once you begin to dip your toes into psychological therapies, it doesn’t take long before you begin to see TLAs all over the place. So today I’m going to post on two things: some of the TLAs, and why or how we might consider using these approaches in pain rehabilitation. The first one is CBT, or cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT grew out of two movements: behaviour therapy (Skinner and the pigeons, rats and all that behaviour modification stuff), and cognitive therapy (Ellis and Beck and the “cognitive triad” – more on this later). When the two approaches to therapy are combined, we have c...

CONCLUSION: These findings offer insights into the particular challenges for rural clinicians in providing services under the NDIS. While there is improved funding support for people with a disability, this places additional pressure on rural clinicians who are already likely to be working at or beyond their workload capacity. Issues with recruitment and retention of new clinicians into rural and remote areas appear to be ongoing, which was identified as compounding the impact of the NDIS on existing service providers. Supporting the rural and remote workforce appears critical to avoid de-registration of existing NDIS serv...
