LLI-512 Improvement of accessibility and efficiency of rehabilitation services in Lithuanian University of Health Sciences Kaunas Hospital and Rehabilitation centre Razna Ltd (RehabServices)

Latvia and Lithuania face common challenges of an aging population, a growing number of people with disabilities, high levels of social exclusion and poverty. In Latgale and Kaunas regions, the number of people in need of rehabilitation services is growing, but the availability of rehabilitation services is not sufficient and developed in these regions. Equal access is hampered by the poor material base, outdated equipment and insufficient skills of specialists. The project aims to improve the availability and efficiency of rehabilitation services, increase the capacity of rehabilitation centers in Lithuanian University of Health sciences Kaunas Hospital and Rehabilitation center “Razna” in Rezekne. During the project, general competencies (managerial) and special competencies (professional development) trainings (10 general and 10 special trainings) will be carried out for specialists of rehabilitation centers (doctors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and others). The specialists of the project partners will participate in the international conference that aims to improve experience of the specialists to provide rehabilitation services in modern methods. Both partners will purchase modern rehabilitation equipment (multi-sensory equipment, magnetic field, laser, light, hydro therapy devices, etc.) to provide more efficient rehabilitation procedures for patients. A methodological guide for rehabilitation specialists will also be developed, which will include the good practice of providing rehabilitation services collected during the project.

The results of the project will be used mainly by specialists (about 100 specialists) and patients (about 1000 patients per year) of both rehabilitation institutions participating in the project. The results of the project will be sought through the project activities carried out jointly by the project partners and the cooperation of specialists of both partners during the project.
