Part of the Human Brain Function book series (HBFA)


Many of the dynamic and unique roles nurses have enacted in rehabilitation in the past have prepared them for the roles which they will develop into the upcoming century. This chapter opens with an explanation of the nature and goals of rehabilitation nursing, followed by discussion of rehabilitation nursing as a professional specialty. The final portion of the chapter is devoted to two flourishing areas of practice for rehabilitation nurses, namely, case management and community based care.
