Strategic Plan of Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Research Center


Human knowledge is evolving at an astonishing rate. Today, research, especially in the field of rehabilitation as an item of sustainable development, develops human society. Meanwhile, universities and research centers as places for knowledge production meet the growing need in the field of rehabilitation and changes in the social structure by formulating their strategic plans in accordance with the prevailing conditions and capabilities. So, they use resources to advance their goals.

Developing a documented strategic plan enables managers to plan for the aim of organizational growth and development, with a realistic view of opportunities, capabilities, threats and weaknesses, and to prevent the organization from overworking and misguided in advance.

The Strategic Plan Document of the Neuromuscular Rehabilitation Research Center has been compiled with the emphasis that "the implementation of the Strategic Plan should be operational at the level of the entire organization" and undoubtedly has technical and content shortcomings.

It is hoped that applying and implementing of this document pave the way for the promotion of the real status of applied research in order to achieve justice in public health.
