Summary of Content: This module provides an overview of concepts central to all forms of rehabilitation. Students will be introduced to an understanding of disability from different perspectives: models of disability, the biopsychosocial model and the WHO conceptual framework. Links between theory, research and practice in rehabilitation will be considered. The module will cover research issues in rehabilitation research, focusing particularly on complex interventions, evaluating interventions and measuring outcome. The module will also discuss how research evidence informs approaches to rehabilitation. Examples of rehabilitation in practice in different conditions from psychological and multidisciplinary perspectives will be included. The module will consider the spectrum of rehabilitation, reviewing the broad range of health and social contexts in which rehabilitation occurs.
