The Neuro-Rehabilitation Group at the Defence Medical Rehabilitation Centre (DMRC) has developed an integrated vocational pathway to transition service personnel back into employment. This article describes how vocational rehabilitation at DMRC fits with the wider UK military, in comparison with civilian rehabilitation. It also describes the ongoing development of the vocational pathway, which contributes to improved outcomes from neurological disorders, including traumatic brain injury. We present two cases to highlight how the programme integrates with and influences patient care.
