Measurement Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group brochure PDF coverThe ACRM Measurement Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group (M-ISIG) focuses on members’ interests in the development, application, evaluation, and utilization of outcome measures. Members contribute programming to the ACRM Annual Conference and develop activities of common interest.


Please contact the chair to learn more and get involved.



To produce and synthesize evidence of psychometrically advanced and improved measurement that enhances patient care and influences healthcare policy.



  • To promote the development and application of high-quality instruments that are used to improve patient care, healthcare delivery, and public health.
  • We seek to build the capacity of rehabilitation providers to select, use, and interpret outcome measures to inform evidence-based practice and policy.
  • To advance research and education by connecting peers, researchers and presenters all over the world.



All members of the rehabilitation team—researchers, clinicians, patients and loved ones benefit from participation in this ACRM Interdisciplinary Special Interest Group and its Task Forces.



The M-ISIG has initiated a Postdoctoral Match Program to help match postdoc rehabilitation trainees with postdoctoral rehabilitation research positions. This program is a free benefit of your ACRM membership. An application survey was first emailed to BI-ISIG members on Tuesday, 11 January, 2022 at 1:51 PM ET. Please search your inbox and/or spam folder for that invitation or watch for upcoming email reminders.

To participate, please complete the Postdoctoral Match Program Application survey by 5:00 PM ET on Tuesday, 1 February 2022 to tell us about yourself or the research position you have available. If you are an M-ISIG member and did not receive the program application, please contact Cindy Robinson for assistance.

Once the application period has concluded, we will follow-up via email to connect postdoc trainees with the positions available.

Please contact the Program Coordinator, Allan Kozlowski, PhD, BSc (PT) with any questions.

Call for Proposals for papers and posters in rehabilitation measurement


Seeking subject matter experts to develop common data elements

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) are convening a working group of subject matter experts (clinicians, researchers, patient advocates, allied health professionals) to develop common data elements (CDEs) for rehabilitation research in neurological disorders. The goal is to develop data standards for clinical research in rehabilitation that are a current and useful tool for investigators and their research teams. The M-ISIG is eager to support this effort and invites ACRM members to serve as subject matter experts.

There is a particular need for subject matter experts in comorbid/behavioral conditions (e.g., sleep, pain) and speech language/communication disorders (e.g., deafness, aphasia).  Contact Allen Heinemann or Noelle Carlozzi to learn more.


The opportunity to participate in more than 20 specialized interdisciplinary special interest groups (ISIG) and networking groups and to engage in their task forces is one of the most valuable benefits of ACRM membership.

Membership is available at various levels and includes a subscription to the most-cited journal in rehabilitation, Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, as well as discounted member pricing on all ACRM products and events.
