Now the research project Pain Rehabilitation in collaboration in full swing in primary care in Norrbotten. The project aims to develop and evaluate rehabilitation of patients with long-term problems from neck, shoulder and back.
The project is implemented in close cooperation between the County Council of Norrbotten and Lulea University of Technology and is conducted in thirteen health centers that are certified for multimodal rehabilitation.
Multimodal rehabilitation means rehabilitation of several health care providers involved, such as physiotherapists, doctors, occupational therapists and social workers.
The project means that patients undergoing multimodal rehabilitation also may work with a web-based support on their own. The idea is that patients will improve their health and work and become more involved in their rehabilitation.
The goal is to shorten recovery time. If the results of the project is found to be positive so the goal is to introduce the web-based self-help program at all health centers in the future.
The project is part of the research REHSAM funded by the Ministry of Health via the Social Insurance Agency. Within REHSAM program conducts research for better and more effective treatment in the rehabilitation guarantee. Vårdval Foundation is responsible on behalf of the Insurance call process and evaluation of research applications in the field.
