Physicians and Clinicians
The ACRM Physicians and Clinicians Networking Group was developed to create resources and networks that will help physicians and clinicians in academics and clinical leadership to develop interdisciplinary research and promote research translation that supports the highest quality clinical care in rehabilitation. Potential resources may include educational courses presented at the ACRM Annual Conference, webinars, review papers and/or specific projects agreed upon or of interest to its members.

Evaluating Practice Patterns in Rehab of Patients with TBI in ICU
The University of Cincinnati Medical Center is conducting an important survey to collect information from a variety of providers who treat/consult on individuals with TBI in the ICU and requests ACRM member participation. This survey evaluates practice patterns in the rehabilitation of patients with moderate and severe TBI in the neuro intensive care unit.
Findings will inform future studies examining the impact of rehabilitation interventions in the ICU and help us to develop better family-centered approaches to therapy.
This survey should take approximately 5-10 minutes, and you will not be able to return to the survey once you exit.
