Integrated, Innovative and Ambitious Rehabilitation in a Post-Covid Era

11:45 - 13:00

This interactive session will explore the concept of good rehabilitation as part of COVID-19 recovery and will aim to inspire delegates to consider innovative solutions to address demand, inequalities and workforce challenges. 

Following on from the Framework for Supporting People through Recovery and Rehabilitation during and after the (COVID-19) pandemic, the Scottish Government will soon launch the ‘Once for Scotland’ approach to rehabilitation that will support the delivery of accessible and quality rehabilitation to everyone who needs it.

The session will explore the principles of good rehabilitation to demonstrate how a whole-system and integrated approach to rehabilitation can improve outcomes at an individual and community level.
