ACRM Disorders of Consciousness Practice Guideline

New Practice Guideline on Disorders of Consciousness

For people in a coma, vegetative state or with limited consciousness, an early and accurate diagnosis could mean a better chance for recovery in the first three months, according to a new guideline developed by the American Academy of Neurology (AAN), the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) and the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR). The guideline, “Practice guideline update recommendations summary: Disorders of consciousness” posted in the Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation on August 8 and is freely available. Dr. Joseph Giacino and colleagues will lead a two-part Special Symposium reporting on the development of DOC guidelines at the ACRM Annual Conference on 2 October. View the Guideline, Systematic Review and Summaries >>
