EVIDENCE-BASED GUIDELINES TASK FORCE

 

The Evidence-Based Guidelines Task Force works to advance scientific knowledge of complementary integrative rehabilitation medicine, to develop and disseminate guidelines for clinical practice of CIRM based on scientific principles/knowledge, and to advocate for appropriate CIRM interventions for a wide variety of medical conditions that affect the physical function, cognitive and psychiatric well-being, and quality of life of individuals with disabilities and chronic health conditions. Objectives include:

  • Clarifying what is meant by the term “evidence”
  • Describing the kinds of contemporary systems used to identify and evaluate evidence in intervention research
  • Identifying the challenges inherent in meeting contemporary standards of evidence in the field of CIRM interventions
  • Proposing next steps for examining related issues and promoting the availability of evidence-based CIRM services and information for interventions.
