During the last decade the rehabilitation sector has been undergoing important changes due to national and international movements on many levels of the service provision, mainly as a consequence of the breakdown/reduction of the welfare state.

De-institutionalisation, decentralisation of service provision, continuity and quality of services, cooperation with other providers and mainstream organisations, financial reductions, central position of the client – all those issues mean challenges for our staff. Waiting for the future is not an option anymore. Service providers must develop optimal  Human Resources management to find appropriate answers by preparing their staff for new roles.
