When you wake up in the morning, the last thing you expect to experience in the day ahead is a stroke, traumatic brain or spinal cord injury or any other life-changing occurrence. Such things can and do however happen, and when they do, your ability to lead a normal life, think, communicate, and connect with others can be affected. This can have a devastating impact not only your own life but also that of your family and friends.
Twenty years ago, the chances of a patient making a full recovery after experiencing something as devastating as a stroke or trauma were average at best. With advances in rehabilitation however, the outcomes today are remarkably different. Breakthroughs in medication and technology combined with innovative therapies have dramatically improved hope for a successful recovery, giving patients a second chance at leading a normal life.
At Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, our highly skilled team of clinicians and therapists delivers a personalized package of exceptional rehabilitative treatment and care in an environment that encourages healing – both mentally and physically.
Your Recovery Journey – A Coordinated Approach
QRI is dedicated to delivering personalized, patient-centered care at the heart of which are our passionate multi-disciplinary teams of physicians and occupational, physical, pediatric, and speech therapists, many of whom hold advanced certification in diverse clinical specialties, ranging from orthopedics to geriatrics.
These teams work together to offer patients advanced rehabilitation treatments and services to ensure the delivery of specialized therapy plans which are tailored to individual circumstances. These are being phased in gradually during 2017.
Patient treatment plans are discussed and co-coordinated between our doctors, nurses and therapists to ensure the best possible treatment and therapy plans are developed for our patients which are based on the most up-to-date research and practice. Our overarching goal is to help our patients reach their full recovery potential so they can return to living as normal a life as possible.
The QRI starts planning our patients’ recovery right from the start of their journey with us to ensure they receive the best possible rehabilitative care which is tailored to their individual needs. This means that no matter where in HMC their recovery journey begins, whether it is at Hamad General Hospital or Rumailah Hospital, we all work together to ensure our patients’ recovery and treatment plan is integrated and seamless.
We also work closely with other health and social care services to ensure patients and their carers have access to these services and are enabled to enjoy a better quality of life, as independently as possible.
This means that healthcare providers from different professions work together collaboratively to provide care and treatment within their own individual area of scope and competency. Patient care is communicated and coordinated between the multidisciplinary team and other care providers throughout our patients’ journey to recovery.
