GUIDE TO PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

The former ACRM Health Policy Networking Group has evolved into the new Health Services Research Networking Group led by Chair, Dr. James E. Graham and Chair-Elect, Dr. Natalie Leland. 

This is a great time to get involved in this growing group to help identify opportunities they will pursue, recruit colleagues in the field, or step into a leadership role as chair of a task force.

Contact the Health Services Research Networking Group Chair, Dr. James Graham, to learn more and get involved.

 

MISSION

Facilitate collaboration and increase the scope and effectiveness of rehabilitation-relevant health services research.

 

VISION

To leverage our expertise as rehabilitation professionals to conduct, promote, and disseminate rehabilitation-relevant health services research that directly informs how rehabilitation services are organized, delivered, evaluated, and reimbursed. Together, we can provide the quality evidence that gives rehabilitation a strong voice during these transformative times.

 

GOALS

  1. Increase capacity for conducting and disseminating rehabilitation-relevant health services research.
  2. Conduct timely, policy-relevant projects that demonstrate the value of rehabilitative care and inform decision-making.
