"This action research aimed to explore how physical therapists could enhance the quality of life for persons with disabilities via a community-based rehabilitation (CBR) strategy...The findings revealed that physical therapists had numerous roles in CBR, depending on the community’s circumstances. They need a high degree of flexibility and a wide range of skills to contribute to CBR. The preparation of such physical therapists requires development of a more client-centered community-oriented education programme"
