NICE Guideline NG211 - Rehabilitation after traumatic injury

This person would work closely with the multidisciplinary team to coordinate the patient pathway between relevant specialties involved in the treatment, including acute surgical and medical teams and rehabilitation, from admission to discharge, particularly for people with highly complex traumatic injuries and rehabilitation needs. They offer clinical advice and sometimes this role is performed by a nurse and is sometimes called a nurse coordinator. This role may also include the responsibilities of a key worker, liaising with family and carers, especially in the early stages of the pathway.
