Community neurorehabilitation: a synthesis of current evidence and future research directions.

Over the past decade, community neurorehabilitation has emerged as a promising extension of neurological rehabilitation. The goal of community neurorehabilitation is to maximize functional ability and quality of life through multidimensional rehabilitation that occurs while the individual is living in a home versus acute or transitory care setting. Because of its multidisciplinary focus, many variations of community neurorehabilitation teams have been implemented. Critical gaps exist, however, in understanding of the influence of structural and procedural differences among programs, as well as patient level variables such as social support, on recovery. This paper examines the current evidence of the effectiveness of community neurorehabilitation through a review of the findings of systematic reviews and meta-analyses of four neurological conditions: stroke, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, and Parkinson's disease. It focuses in particular on the data regarding physical therapy and occupational therapy, which are two of the primary components of community neurorehabilitation programs.
