Restorative home support, a new approach.
In January 2023, the ReAble research network consists of 55 members from twelve countries (Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Ireland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, UK and US). Hanne Tuntland (Norway) is the coordinator of the network, with Magnus Zingmark (Sweden) and Jette Thuesen (Denmark) as close collaborators. The network has an extended coordination group which consists of Silke Metzelthin (The Netherlands), Micelle Nelson (Canada), Fiona Aspinal (England), Elissa Burton and Hilary O’Connell (Australia), and John Parsons and Matthew Parsons (New Zealand) in addition to the three aforementioned persons.
The purpose of the network is to:
• Foster an international research network for information exchange on research publications and reablement news from the countries of the members.
• Apply for research funding to develop joint research projects, publications and conference contributions.
• Apply an interprofessional perspective to critically investigate the idea behind reablement, its application and implementation in different geographical contexts.
