Life after injury 2002 is a very practical handbook. This book is about more than basic physical therapy and rehabilitation. It covers the full range of the understanding and assistance that severely injured persons need. Life after injury often takes place in difficult settings. This book will help injured person to overcome both physical and psycho-social trauma, and return to the fullest possible participation with their families and communities.

The comprehensive, down-to-earth approach covers a wide range of related problems and needs. Extending from the event of the injury, through emergency care, hospitalisation (when possible) and finally integration back into the community. Written to be understood by community-level rehabilitation and village health workers, as well as trained physio and occupational therapists, doctors and nurses, and including friends and family in the therapeutic process. The guide’s main aim for the patient is healing, becoming able again, and rejoining the community.

These goals should be attainable in all cultural, religious and political circumstances thanks to the ethos and information provided in this handbook.
