This report looked at how to provide a rehabilitation system that supports people from acute care through to returning to their communities and homes after illness or injury. It is one of a number of forecasts commissioned by Health Workforce New Zealand (HWNZ) to build a picture of the future health and disability workforce.
- increase the provision of rehabilitation training
- improve care coordination once patients have been discharged from hospital.
