The World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR) is a multidisciplinary organisation with a mission to advance research, education and clinical practice in neurorehabilitation throughout the world.

WEBINARS

The WFNR Research Committee has launched a new programme, a webinar series on ‘Clinical Research on NeuroRehabilitation’.  This will be
a good platform to learn the clinical research on neurorehabilitation for early career researchers and anyone interested in clinical research.

A webinar will be held every month from this May using pre-recorded lecture and real-time online Q&A afterward.


Participation is free for everyone.

Selected References Related to COVID-19 and Neurorehabilitation

Among other activities, the WFNR in collaboration with “Frontiers in Neurology” launched a collection of articles (Research Topic) titled: COVID-19: The Neurorehabilitation Perspective.

The idea is to collect high-level manuscripts from international experts, who will tackle the issue from different points of view, with the main aim to create a continuously accumulating e-Book compilation. Manuscript contributions can be of different formats (for details see the applicable author guidelines published by Frontiers). During 2020 a waiver policy by Frontiers is in act that grants publication free of charge to authors for those manuscripts that were enlisted and approved as abstracts.

Research groups interested in submitting their research reports and all health care professionals in neurorehabilitation teams who want to keep them informed about the most recent COVID-19 neurorehabilitation research are invited to visit the project web site at https://www.frontiersin.org/research-topics/14021/covid-19-the-neurorehabilitation-perspective

Clinical Pathways in Stroke Rehabilitation

Clinical Pathways in Stroke Rehabilitation

Edited by Thomas Platz (Ed.)

This is a World Federation for NeuroRehabilitation (WFNR) educational initiative, bridging the gap between the rapidly expanding clinical research in stroke rehabilitation and clinical practice across societies and continents.
Open access, with free and unlimited access. Download at https://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-3-030-58505-1 

Evidence-based Clinical Practice Recommendations

Focusing on practical clinical problems that are frequently encountered in stroke rehabilitation, this book provides evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for stroke rehabilitation.  It discusses clinical problems and evidence, comments on assessment, therapy and technical aids.

Consequences of diseases, e.g. impairments and activity limitations, are addressed in rehabilitation with the overall goal to reduce disability and promote participation. Based on the available best external evidence, clinical pathways are described for stroke rehabilitation bridging the gap between clinical evidence and clinical decision-making.

The clinical pathways answer the questions which rehabilitation treatment options are beneficial to overcome specific impairment constellations and activity limitations and are well acceptable to stroke survivors, as well as when and in which settings to provide rehabilitation over the course of recovery post stroke. Each chapter starts with a description of the clinical problem encountered. This is followed by a systematic, but concise review of the evidence (RCTs, systematic reviews and meta-analyses) that is relevant for clinical decision-making, and comments on assessment, therapy (training, technology, medication), and the use of technical aids as appropriate.

Based on these summaries, clinical algorithms / pathways are provided and the main clinical-decision situations are portrayed. The book will be invaluable for all neurorehabilitation team members, clinicians, nurses, and therapists in neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, and related fields.

It can be used for both clinical decision-making for individuals and as well as clinical background knowledge for stroke rehabilitation service development initiatives.
