Rehabilitation is a broad, concrete concept, where various therapeutic goals should be achieved in a multi-professional setting (e.g., Physical Therapists, Physicians, Doctors, Nurses, Sports Science and Physical Education Professionals) and in full observance of a safe and effective practice. For this, there is a pressing need to detect legal precepts of professional practice, as well as to know how to support them in clear constructs, well-defined technical and scientific precedences, training processes with coherent access, learning objectives, and performance. Thus, the substance and purpose of Rehabilitation (e.g. Nutrition Sciences, Physiotherapy, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy and others), Nursing, Medicine and others in the context of the national classification of education and training areas should promote working in harmony of concepts, expanding and enabling the interface with professionals in the sports sciences and physical education, social work and other areas of knowledge determinant to respond to more than 2 billion people who globally can benefit from rehabilitation, despite observing technical-scientific references indexed to professions, Approximately 1 in 3 people worldwide could benefit from rehabilitation. Academia Clínica Espregueira promotes, based on the above, on scientific evidence and on good practices, Physical Therapy and Advanced Physical Therapy courses for physiotherapists as well as Rehabilitation courses for nurses, physicians, sports science and physical education professionals, physical therapists, osteopaths and others who, within the context of the competencies of their degree, without exceeding the limits of their competence, contribute significantly to the well-being and health of people and society.
