Pediatric Rehabilitative Outcomes Task Force
Documenting meaningful functional outcomes in pediatric rehabilitation is challenging and, frequently, disease specific. Long term follow up is challenging, given the multitude of scales and measuring tools, their reliability and validity, age and diagnosis specificity. This task force’s main goal is to create a comprehensive list of validated outcomes, disease and age specific and propose a streamlined approach for long term functional follow up.
Proposed steps in the process:
- Comprehensive review of evidence based literature looking at existing disease and function specific outcomes
- Critical analysis and streamlining of those outcomes that are robust enough to apply longitudinally over time and across diagnosis
We are looking for PRNG current and prospective members who are interested in pediatric outcomes. Contact the task force co-chairs to learn more.
