NeuroRehabilitation, an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal, publishes manuscripts focused on scientifically based, practical information relevant to all aspects of neurologic rehabilitation. We publish unsolicited papers detailing original work/research that covers the full life span and range of neurological disabilities including stroke, spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, neuromuscular disease and other neurological disorders.
We also publish thematically organized issues that focus on specific clinical disorders, types of therapy and age groups. Proposals for thematic issues and suggestions for issue editors are welcomed.

Abstract: A systematic review was conducted of the evidence for the effectiveness of the outcomes from treatment by multidisciplinary outpatient rehabilitation programs which were provided by more than one allied health or nursing discipline for people diagnosed with Parkinson's disease (PD). The search yielded only 4 studies ranging from poor to good quality, on the outcomes of multidisciplinary rehabilitation. There were no available random controlled trials on short term outcomes although some limited evidence from lower quality studies suggested significant short term gains are achieved in gait speed and step length. No consistent evidence is available for other outcome measures. From …the available evidence for longer term outcomes over a period of 4–6 months post intervention the improvements in outcome measures for gait are not significant. The results of this systematic review suggest that there is limited evidence to suggest short term gains in outcomes for people with PD attending multidisciplinary programs but over a 4–6 month period these gains are no longer significant. Overall, there is very limited high level evidence available to show whether multidisciplinary out-patient programs produce effective, either short or long term, outcomes for PD and further research is needed.
