This subject is designed to extend student knowledge, clinical and case management skills with respect to the long-term management of people living with a disability. The focus will be on people from regional, rural, remote and Indigenous communities. Populations will include those with complex congenital or acquired injury or disease that has resulted in long-term disability and significant lifestyle adaptation. Such groups of people may include those with acquired brain injury, spinal cord injury or multiple sclerosis: conditions that impact on mobility, self-care and independent living. Emphasis is on the knowledge and application of Community Rehabilitation core competencies to optimise functional potential and quality of life. Consideration is also given to cost effectiveness of services delivered. The subject is taught as a 12 week block of self-directed study followed by a 4-day residential block in Townsville. Self-directed work will consider the lifespan sequelae of specific complex conditions and complex circumstances and it will be supported by written, oral and visual teaching materials and videoconference.
