    Abstract

    In Denmark the development of rehabilitation of patients with acquired brain injury (ABI) has differed from most parts of Europe. Denmark has no medical rehabilitation specialty. In 2000 two specialized hospital units were established to serve the population of 5.7 million inhabitants. They cover the needs of patients with the most severe ABIs. Only recently rehabilitation of patients with ABI has been anchored in the medical specialty of neurology. Since then the development has taken an up-going curve. This process has been supported by The Danish Health and Medicines Authority publishing several papers that highlights evidence-based organization and interventions. Current development aim to define: 1) skills of the medical doctor engaged in the rehabilitation of patients with ABI, 2) stratification to different levels of specialization at hospital and in the community, and 3) national guidelines that specify skills and collaboration between groups of professionals working with ABI rehabilitation.
