Vision Task Force Update

The Vision Task Force membership is working hard to make this year a productive one. We have a great group of core members who are dedicated to the task force mission and the goals we set for the year.

We are currently working on a second manuscript (based on a survey we conducted) and working with the Rehab Measures Database group to provide additional content on vision outcome measures not already represented on their website. Our most successful goal last year was being accepted for publication in the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (in press).

Please contact task force co-chairs, John Ross Rizzo, MD  or Kimberly Hreha, MS OTR/L OT, edD(c) to learn how to get involved.

Clinical Questions Answered at Stroke Twitter Event   Twitter Icon

The Stroke ISIG invites you to participate in the new “Hot Topics” monthly Twitter event!

At the beginning of each month, the ACRM Stroke ISIG will post clinical questions related to stroke rehabilitation on our Twitter page @ACRMStroke. All of our followers can then share their opinions, experiences and expertise. This is a fantastic opportunity to engage and share evidence-based tips and knowledge with your colleagues.

The question will change monthly and is meant to stimulate discussion about topics of interest. Please share this opportunity with your colleagues!
