SveRekoord- Evaluation of rehabilitation coordinators impact in primary healthcare

Projekt: Forskning



Region Skåne is one of many regions that has introduced the function of rehabilitation coordinator in several care units, especially in primary healthcare. A rehabilitation coordinator is often an already employed person, usually with a background as a physiotherapist, occupational therapist, counselor or nurse. He or she is then given the task of being a rehabilitation coordinator within the employment or parts of the position. Since February 2020, the rehabilitation coordinator function has been a statutory and permanent function in Swedish health care. Few studies have evaluated the role of the rehabilitation coordinator and the effectiveness of their function in relation to patterns of sick-leave.

The overall aim of the project is to study the usefulness having employed rehabilitation coordinator in primary healthcare care and also to evaluate the one-year training that rehabilitation coordinators have undergone.
