Rehabilitation practitioners need to reform the field's model of service provision, demonstrate the effectiveness of their own work and intensify adoption and use of technology. It is important to provide the Helsinki Metropolitan Area with diverse curative and preventive rehabilitation services. The challenge for rehabilitation is to improve the position of clients by creating inclusive procedures. This requires solutions to be found from the resources of individuals and their local communities as well as development of living conditions and environments together with each client.

Within the Degree Programme, rehabilitation is perceived in terms of an individual, collective and societal change process. The key aspects of such a change process are the client's benefit, professional practice building on common interfaces and development-oriented leadership and management. The ageing population, the increase in the number of social and health care clients with multiple problems and various problems with working and functional capacity represent significant challenges from the perspective of the population's health and well-being. A specific need in the rehabilitation field is to develop rehabilitation services for the ageing workforce, long-term unemployed people, young people at risk of social exclusion, people with severe disabilities in all age groups, people with mental and/or substance abuse problems, and elderly people.

The field of rehabilitation offers diverse work assignments, which require research-oriented development, leadership and management competencies. Those graduating from the Degree Programme can find positions in various development, expert and managerial assignments within their field. The field offers job opportunities in the public, private and third sectors alike.
