Considering Special Issues in Recovery
Some individuals perceive a shift towards recovery-oriented practice as representing a radical change in the health system and a better way of delivering services. In contrast, other individuals would argue that recovery-oriented reforms do not contribute anything new, and that “Recovery” is simply a politicalized “buzz” word in health discourse.
(Piat & Lal, 2012)
Perhaps a neutral ground of agreement is that there exists various challenges and many considerations of the special issues related to implementing recovery-oriented practice across the populations and care continuum.
We would love for you to share your thoughts and opinions!
