Slow stream rehabilitation refers to a model of service delivery provided to individuals whose recovery is considered to be slow or prolonged, and who are often regarded as being inappropriate for traditional, intensive rehabilitation, in particular those with severe to very severe brain injuries. There is increasing evidence that these individuals have significant potential for recovery, even several years after injury, when provided with effective rehabilitation.
As such, there is increasing recognition of the role that appropriately timed and individually-tailored rehabilitation can play for people with severe brain injuries in optimising their function, supporting their independence and maximising their quality of life. Slow stream rehabilitation has been identified as an important factor in avoiding entry into residential care for these individuals.
Slow stream Neuro rehabilitation provides a multidisciplinary team approach to maximising the potential for people with physical, cognitive and/or communicative disabilities associated with a neurological condition. These individuals may have potential to regain further independence and functionality that has not yet been achieved. The service includes goal setting; outcome measures; discharge planning and support.
Neurological rehabilitation is the term used to describe the treatment that people can receive after they have had a neurological injury, illness or diagnosis of a long term neurological condition.
