Abstract

  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effectiveness of multidisciplinary rehabilitation in persons after primary brain tumour treatment, and specifically to explore the following areas:

  • Does organised multidisciplinary rehabilitation achieve better outcomes than the absence of such services in persons after primary brain tumour treatment?
  • Which type of programmes are effective and in which setting?
  • Does a greater intensity (time and expertise, or both) of rehabilitation lead to greater gains?
  • Which specific outcomes are influenced (survival, dependency, social integration, mood, quality of life)?
