MISSION

Our mission is to enable continued development and widespread adoption of the RTSS by:

  1. Providing a forum for ongoing discussion with rehabilitation professionals with diverse backgrounds who are interested in issues related to treatment specification
  2. Conducting RTSS implementation projects that inform further refinement and implementation of the RTSS
  3. Developing educational efforts to increase awareness of the RTSS and enable its use by rehabilitation professionals

Our vision is to become an international and interdisciplinary forum that fosters refinement, dissemination, and widespread adoption of the Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System (RTSS).

PROBLEM & PURPOSE STATEMENTS

Problem:  The rehabilitation field lacks a common framework for specifying the content of rehabilitation interventions.

Why Specification Matters:  Describing rehabilitation interventions in a way that is understood across disciplines and specialty areas is critical to:

  • Facilitate communication
  • Translate research to practice
  • Enhance clinical reasoning
  • Aid clinician training
  • Facilitate treatment replication and research syntheses

Purpose of Rehabilitation Treatment Specification Networking Group: To develop and disseminate a standardized way to define and describe rehabilitation treatments to benefit practice, research, and education.
