The aim of this paper is to present the first outcomes of an international project titled “Development of innovative Training contents based on the applicability of Virtual Reality in the field of Stroke Rehabilitation”. Particularly two aspects were described: (1) recognition of educational needs of medics who support neurological patients in their rehabilitation process, (2) the concept of structure and contents of an e-learning course about this topic. The methodology was based on a questionnaire that was spread among professionals within European countries and, then, on focus group panels deepening selected results obtained in the survey. The questionnaire included 7 categories and 24 questions in total, covering the key training needs in as the field of using virtual reality tools and biomechanical technologies in post-stroke rehabilitation. The major findings of the research allowed describing the subjects of four training modules and learning sessions that were the groundwork for preparing cross-sectional matrix of competencies, skills and knowledge for innovative technology-based post-stroke rehabilitation.
