Rehabilitation at the University of Canberra Hospital (UCH) occurs in a variety of settings with a wide range of people. We expect you to attend all planned treatment and therapy sessions and continue your independent program and task practice outside of therapy sessions.
You are placed under the care of a rehabilitation specialist and multidisciplinary team of therapists on admission to UCH. This team works together with you and your support people to help you achieve your goals.
Your rehabilitation therapists may invite your support people to some therapy sessions to see how your treatment is working and learn how to help you when you leave hospital. Your support people may also be asked to attend meetings, complete paperwork and assist with your care.
The type and frequency of therapy programs you participate in are determined by your individual needs. Please see the information below on programs you may require.
