Researcher looks at recovery after injury beyond mere survival in humanitarian aid settings

Beyond surviving after an injury comes living. To what extent a person is able to return to the life and independence previously enjoyed is an important aspect of recovery and rehabilitation is often a crucial factor in that. Nonetheless, it is a factor often overlooked in humanitarian settings and it is an area where more research is needed. Bérangère Gohy’s Ph.D. thesis looks beyond survival, to how recovery is measured and what the patients’ road to regained independence looks like.
