INFORMATION/ EDUCATION PAGES

The ACRM Communications Committee has developed a new feature, Information/Education Pages, which appear in the Organization News section of Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.

These fact sheets are printed as tear-out pages. They are designed to provide consumer-friendly information on topics relevant to rehabilitation medicine, including basic background or overview, similar to a Wikipedia entry, or brief how-to suggestions. They are targeted toward people with disabilities, their caregivers, or clinicians; and are designed so that a practitioner can tear out and copy, or download the pages, to make them available to patients and caregivers.
