- theoretical considerations in the field of medical rehabilitation in confrontation with clinical condition and medical findings;
- practical application of kinesiotherapeutic strategies and methodologies in neurology, spinal issues and the care of critically ill patients;
- establish a short and long term rehabilitation plan;
- evaluate the effect of physiotherapy intervention and overall rehabilitation treatment;
- other considerations related to follow-up (medical) treatment and the process of coordinated rehabilitation.
