NICE Guideline NG211 - Rehabilitation after traumatic injury

This follows the principles of the initial rehabilitation assessment in the section on assessment and early interventions for people with complex rehabilitation needs, and also takes into account implications for rehabilitation such as recovery timescales, quality of life and goal setting for different surgical options that may include amputation of all or part of the limb, or reconstructive surgery of the limb. Decisions about surgical interventions would affect the kind of rehabilitation interventions and therapies the person would need, the timescales involved and their personal goals.
