Strong Social Network Speeds Up Medical Recovery, Study
This study provides an example that hospitals must pay equal attention to both physical rehabilitation and psychological recovery.
Zakkoyya Lewis, a doctoral student in UTMD’s department of rehabilitation sciences and the lead author of the study, says: “When someone does not have the social support of family and friends, they take longer to return home to the community. We believe that support from loved ones may lead to better recovery and better quality of life. Our study is one of the first to look at how the level of social support impacts how long patients need to spend in a rehab facility.”
