Study hypothesis

Therapy levels in our inpatient rehabilitation unit are among the lowest nationally, and approximately half those suggested to be optimal. However, rehabilitation therapists are expensive and in short supply. Would potential benefits in patient outcome, primarily measured by duration of stay, justify changes to current practice and staffing levels? With backing from the University of Leeds Clinical Trials Unit, we will undertake the first UK randomised, controlled trial designed to answer this important question.
