Quality statement 8 (placeholder): Post‑acute phase rehabilitation for children and young people

What is a placeholder statement?

A placeholder statement is an area of care that has been prioritised by the Quality Standards Advisory Committee but for which no source guidance is currently available. A placeholder statement indicates the need for evidence‑based guidance to be developed in this area.

Rationale

Rehabilitation services in the post‑acute phase can be important in helping children and young people (aged under 16) who have had a traumatic brain injury to regain independence and return to their normal daily lives (for example, continuing their education). The services can also provide information and advice to families and carers.
