4.7 Injury and physical rehabilitation

4.7.4 Summary

Injury and rehabilitation is characterised by a strong focus on surgery and medical care. The rehabilitation aspect of the area has been limitedly documented by researchers. The number of publications significantly increased during the period 2000 and 2013, which may indicate a growing interest from researchers and implementers to conduct research in humanitarian crises. However, as confirmed by a recent review (Nickerson et al., 2012), the quality of the studies remains quite low and further improvement could be made by diversifying the type of study designs by introducing more RCTs in this field of investigation. One has to mention that a large volume of evidence from more stable settings can be analysed (e.g. van Middendorp et al., 2013, Koea et al. 2014, Iemmi et al., 2014)
