Future Plans: Physical Medicine Rehabilitation
Wounded Warrior Ukraine will be organizing and sending a team of rehabilitation specialists from the US and Canada to conduct an assessment of the Ukrainian rehabilitation services. Upon completion of the research trip, a report will be published together with a set of recommendations on the most effective ways to create modern rehabilitation services in Ukraine.
Wounded Warrior Ukraine plans to organize a series of 6 week trainings for community rehabilitation specialists. Community rehabilitation specialists will form the foundation of the new rehab system and will function as a link between the injured and the outpatient and inpatient clinics.
Concurrently, our organization will be building up rehabilitation expertise in Ukraine:
– Bringing teams of rehab specialists from the US and Canada to treat patients and serve as a residency to train Ukrainian physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech therapists
– Partnering with Ukrainian medical schools to establish modern educational rehab programs
– Bringing rehab workshops to Ukraine
– Bringing Ukrainian rehab students to American and Canadian medical schools
