Frans van der Brugge and NVGF cooperate to integrate Neurorehabilitation for the Central Nervous System (CNS) in China


Frans van der Brugge, trainer and author of the book "Neurorehabilitation for the Central Nervous System" (CNS) and the Dutch network association NVGF (Nederlandse Vereniging voor Geïntegreerde Fysiotherapie) have agreed on a long-term collaboration. Together, they will offer and adapt the theory and methods of CNS for the Chinese market by providing courses, training, and innovative solutions for healthcare challenges, thereby finding ways to integrate this approach into the existing Chinese healthcare system.

Neurorehabilitation for the Central Nervous System (CNS) is an existing course that discusses the most common central neurological disorders (stroke, Parkinson's, MS, and dementia). The aim of the course is to train healthcare professionals to become specialists in neurorehabilitation.

NVGF is the Dutch network association for physiotherapists and otherhealthcare professionals, promoting multi- and interdisciplinary cooperation as well as international collaboration to improve evidence-based medical knowledge and develop comprehensive solutions to health challenges. NVGF has a network of paramedical healthcare professionals, researchers, universities, and companies. In recent years, the organization has gained extensive experience and developed networks in China to explore the demand for appropriate paramedical healthcare solutions in cooperation with the Netherlands.
