It has been fourteen years since doctors who were interested in the rehabilitation of brain diseases across the nation established the Korea Brain Disease Rehabilitation Research Group in 2000, which was later renamed as the Korean Society for Neurorehabilitation (KSNR).
Though its history is still short, KSNR has produced some remarkable achievements such as the development of clinical practice guidelines for stroke rehabilitation in Korea and the standardization of K-NIHSS and K-MBI thanks to the active support from its members.
Today, brain disease rehabilitation is witnessing a rapid advancement. To better support such a rapid development in this field, more frequent exchanges between local and foreign professionals are needed. For this purpose, KSNR is striving to promote international cooperation with global and regional organizations such as the WFNR. Through such cooperation, the members of the KSNR will have more opportunities to share their innovative ideas and learn from best practices in the field.
I deeply appreciate all the support and affection that the members of the KSNR have extended for the last fourteen years and, again, I do ask our members to provide their continued support for the progressive future of our society.
Thank you for visiting the Korean Society for NeuroRehabilitation.
Founded in 2007, the Korean Society for NeuroRehabilitation (KSNR) has achieved impressive growth and achievements. The KSNR has been able to establish itself as one of the leading academic societies in Korea, thanks to the devoted passion and contribution of KSNR members.
KSNR has played a leading role in introducing clinical and academic advancements. KSNR holds regular academic conferences, academic consultation meetings, lectures and workshops every year, allowing KSNR members to share the latest updates and discuss issues related to brain and neurologic rehabilitation.
KNSR has been working diligently to collect, analyze, and summarize up-to-date rehabilitation treatments in the field of brain and neurologic rehabilitation, to provide an optimal rehabilitation treatment for patients suffering from neurological impairments after brain injuries.
As Korea is a rapidly aging society, the interest in the quality of life of the elderly population and the management of related neurodegenerative diseases is increasing. In addition, there have been many changes in the medical and academic activities due to the COVID-19. Fully aware of these challenges to our society, KSNR is trying to fulfill its given roles and responsibilities to return the medical and academic benefits to all members and citizens by further improving and developing the field of neurorehabilitation.
I would like to once again express my deep gratitude to all the members for showing your unwavering affection and interest in KSNR even in a very difficult situation with COVID-19.
Along with the respectful board members, I will do my best to lead KSNR to continue to be as great. I would sincerely ask for the KSNR members continuous and dedicated support and active participation, which is critical for the future development of KSNR.
