Abstract

The national clinical guidelines for Rehabilitation following acquired brain injury were developed by a multidisciplinary working party convened by the British Society of Rehabilitation Medicine, and are published in collaboration with the Royal College of Physicians (2003). They have been produced to complement the National Institute of Clinical Excellence head injury guidelines, and to address the medium- to longer-term needs of patients with acquired brain injury and of their families/carers. This article serves as an introduction to make physicians aware of the guidelines, and to highlight in particular the advice to doctors in the acute services regarding early discharge and referral to rehabilitation.
