Unicare Hokksund deltar i et FOU-samarbeid med øvrige rehabiliteringsinstitusjoner organisert gjennom Virke – Rehab. Vi er også medlem i fagnettverk i regi av Regional Kompetanseenhet Rehabilitering (RKR).

Prosjekter

Her ved Hokksund Rehabiliteringssenter (HRS) har vi kontinuerlig prosjekter gående. Både internt med våre pasienter, men også med samarbeidspartnere på alle nivå. Flere av våre prosjekter er store samarbeidsprosjekter med Helsedirektoratet og Fylkeskommuner.
Noen av disse prosjektene omtales nedenfor

Evaluering av trening for langtidssykemeldte (ARR)

Evaluering av kommunale frislivs-/fysak sentraler (Helsedirektorat)
