Recovery following a brain or spinal injury, or any other neurological disability, can be hugely complex, long and slow-moving. Consultants in Rehabilitation Medicine offer specialist insight in overseeing challenging client presentations and rehabilitation programmes.

Dr Edmund Bonikowski is an experienced Consultant in Rehabilitation Medicine. He has previously chaired webinars explaining the role rehabilitation consultants can play, including a session with Stewarts’ partner Ben Townsend.

In this special episode of Stewarts Soundbites, Dr Bonikowski explores:

  • The background and role of a rehabilitation consultant in a multidisciplinary team (MDT), when to involve them and how often;
  • The value of rehabilitation prescriptions;
  • Introducing input from a rehabilitation consultant in the context on ongoing litigation and cost-effectiveness;
  • The importance of managing pathology to maximise rehabilitation potential and success;
  • How a rehabilitation consultant integrates into an MDT.
