Objective: To understand the experiences of patients who had undergone neurologic rehabilitation.

Setting: Neurologic rehabilitation unit.

Interventions: Not applicable.

Results: Participants predominantly described positive experiences of rehabilitation. The superordinate theme personcenteredness was developed, which included 4 key themes:

appeared to be promoted through the multidimensional benefits of the unit (eg, the understanding and friendly nature of staff and other patients, physical improvements, psychologic gains)

Conclusions: These findings support those from other literature, which has identified person-centered care as a core element of successful rehabilitation and linked its absence to

assessment instrument for neurologic rehabilitation.
