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.
Promotes the science of outcome measure, providing information on medical outcomes research, instruments, and publications.
