Is rehabilitation of older people worthwhile? Keynote address at 13th National Conference (2003) of the Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association

Abbey, Jennifer A. (2003) Is rehabilitation of older people worthwhile? Keynote address at 13th National Conference (2003) of the Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association. Journal of the Australasian Rehabilitation Nurses’ Association, 6(4), pp. 17-20.

Abstract

The question posed for this keynote address is deliberately controversial, of course, but although the issues are still to become fully apparent, I believe that the controversy I want to discuss is real and will become pressing. We start with the two key terms that give us our issue, ‘old’ and ‘rehabilitation’, and then attempt to contextualise the issue, reflecting along the way on why our question is beginning to be asked so often, even if rarely as explicitly as we are doing today.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
