Six recommendations to support rehabilitation research as a supplement to existing research practices was identified. The process of rehabilitation often implies a need for long-term multi-faceted interventions. Therefore, rehabilitation practice requires research addressing different needs and perspectives of the end users, such as service users, professionals, politicians, or administrators. To cover these aspects, research in rehabilitation should integrate different research traditions and methods. Rehabilitation research with a broad focus is sparse, and most of the research takes its starting point in the biomedical research tradition. To emphasis important issues in rehabilitation research, we used the nominal group process to develop these recommendations for addressing and facilitating research projects within the field of rehabilitation.
