P. Barnes and H. Radermacher Multiple sclerosis Individuals with deteriorating conditions, such as multiple sclerosis, are often thought to be unlikely candidates to benefit from multidisciplinary rehabilitation. It is accepted that some drug interventions can modify the course of the disease, particularly recent studies with interferon and copolymer 1. However, the efficacy of input from a rehabilitation team is more difficult to show with any degree of robustness. Pioneering work at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery in London has begun to demonstrate the efficacy of inpatient multidisciplinary rehabilitation for this group.

1998). The authors worked in a regional inpatient rehabilitation unit. They assessed matched individuals with traumatic brain injury and compared those who went through the regional rehabilitation centre with those who were discharged from the neurosurgical unit to a nonrehabilitation environment in a local hospital or those who were discharged straight back home. The individuals were not strictly randomized. The number of inpatient beds was limited on the unit, which did not allow the unit to take all referrals and the groups were reasonably comparable.

Occasionally other disciplines will be involved such as social workers, vocational trainers, counsellors, continence advisors, etc. There is probably no community-based team that has full-time involvement of all the necessary individuals and most teams will have to manage with part-time input from many disciplines, or even no input at all. Obviously this makes the delivery of effective rehabilitation difficult and emphasizes the need for broader-based generic training. There are now a few ‘transitional rehabilitation’ teams or units.
