This webinar will present research on provision of additional weekend rehabilitation services. A series of preliminary studies including systematic reviews, a national survey of practice, and a pilot study were conducted prior to completion of a large randomised controlled trial of rehabilitation inpatients allocated to either a 6-day rehabilitation service (Monday to Saturday) or to standard care (5-day rehabilitation service Monday to Friday). The results demonstrated that compared to standard care inpatients allocated to receive the weekend service had a reduced length of hospital stay with greater likelihood of achieving clinically important improvements in functional independence and health-related quality of life during the admission. From the economic perspective this was likely to be a cost effective intervention. The body of research provides high quality evidence that providing additional allied health rehabilitation services can help patients get better quicker and is likely cost effective from a health service perspective. The next challenge in this research is to explore how best to facilitate transfer of this knowledge into practice.Find out more »
