The content of the telerehabilitation (telerehab) toolkit is based on interviews and discussions with over 100 practitioners, patients and their family members, a survey of 247 UK practitioners and a review of the latest evidence.

It contains sections for practitioners and for patients, with information and guidance on online and telephone appointments as well as links to other useful resources.

The telerehab project is a collaboration between the University of Plymouth and NHS Trusts in Devon and Cornwall, and has been funded by the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) Medical Research Council.

The toolkit will continue to evolve with the addition of more interactive and multimedia features and the project team will be making improvements based on user feedback.
