  • Abstract:

    Rehabilitation has been found to improve the integration of persons with disabilities into the society. For rehabilitation to be effective, there is a need to seek patients' perceptions of the services rendered to them. Incorporating these perceptions in the rehabilitation process of patients is one of the ways that recognises patients' involvement in rehabilitation. The most common identified persons with physical disabilities' experiences that have been explored are: accessibility of rehabilitation services, interaction of service providers with patients, provision of information related to disability and rehabilitation. This review aims at highlighting the experiences of persons with physical disabilities regarding rehabilitation services as it relates to different studies.
