A critical literature review was performed to find factors affecting rehabilitation effectiveness and to organize them in a system-oriented framework. The results revealed that the framework contained the definitions of six interacting concepts (society, interdisciplinary team, client, close others, rehabilitation goals, and process) and concepts indicating good quality results (effectiveness, efficiency, efficacy, evaluation) of rehabilitation services. The review included criticism of present research on rehabilitation and suggestions for solutions.
