The interdisciplinary team (IDT) approach is the most effective approach in complex physical rehabilitation - but implementing a successful IDT can be challenging. This new book will help readers to understand more about the variety of professions that contribute to successful IDT working and how team members work together for the benefit of the rehabilitation patient and their personalised goals.

This is a comprehensive, practical, evidence-based guide to complex rehabilitation from an IDT perspective, exploring the dynamic and diverse roles and challenges of the team. The fifteen chapters are written by clinicians who are highly experienced across a range of disciplines and settings, from early acute rehabilitation to community rehabilitation.

A Practical Approach to Interdisciplinary Complex Rehabilitation will be an invaluable resource for all members of the team, including medical, nursing, dietetics, neuropsychiatry, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, psychology, rehabilitation coordination, speech and language therapy, and vocational rehabilitation therapy.
