3rd AHSA Program——Comprehensive Rehabilitation Center

Health care professionals in Wuhan recognize the importance of helping patients who require rehabilitation services to make the transition from an acute care facility to the community. 

With the opening of the Comprehensive Simulated Rehabilitation Center at Wuhan University HOPE School of Nursing, patients will have access to quality rehabilitative care to help manage their disabilities.  

HSON was awarded a ASHA grant which allowed for the development of the Center.  Equipment has been obtained and installed in rooms on the first floor of the nursing school. 

This center offers an active learning environment for community-based rehabilitation training.  Six hundred students will be educated annually in this facility.    

Eleven nursing faculty were trained at the University of Hawaii on advanced rehabilitation and simulation concepts.  These experienced faculty will be providing evidence-based instruction to students. 

The Center will serve as a research platform for faculty, nursing personnel from seven teaching hospitals and thirty clinical supervisors from five community centers. 

A collaborative approach will be implemented with the extension of rehabilitation services to five sub-centers. 

This Center is the first of its kind in China and a new direction in providing community health care.  Collaborative care that occurs in the sub-centers will promote the return of patients with disabilities to their communities.  

Wuhan University HOPE School of Nursing continues in the fore-front of cooperative leadership in education and practice.  Students are prepared to become leaders in developing innovative community based care.  Wuhan University is one of the top ten universities in China.  HOPE School of Nursing offers a unique curriculum to prepare students as clinical practitioners, researchers and nurse educators.
