The guideline will provide recommendations, where possible, about post-acute assessment for adults over 16 years of age with brain injuries and interventions for cognitive, communicative, emotional, behavioural and physical rehabilitation. Evidence is also presented on important questions relevant to patient outcomes such as optimal models and settings of care, the benefits of discharge planning and the applicability of telemedicine.
