STATEMENT OF NEED AND TARGET AUDIENCE
Interdisciplinary exchange, interaction, and cooperation are the cornerstones of optimal patient care. Educational opportunities that promote interprofessional learning and collaboration are needed to advance clinical and scientific research and its subsequent translation to clinical practice.
The ACRM 91st Annual Conference, Progress in Rehabilitation Research provides that opportunity by bringing together both researchers and clinicians working in the various fields of rehabilitation medicine, including physiatrists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, psychologists, rehabilitation nurses, rehabilitation case managers, rehabilitation counselors, disability specialists, health care executives, dieticians, and other professionals.
After participating in this activity, learners will be able to:
- Identify current and future research in rehabilitation medicine.
- Discuss recent research findings and their potential impact on the clinical care of rehabilitation patients.
- Apply evidence-based knowledge and skills to enhancing patient care.
- Identify strengths and weaknesses in the evidence base for treatment approaches to rehabilitation medicine.
- Understand fundamental issues in ethics, cultural diversity, and evidence-based practice as applied to rehabilitation medicine.
CME/CEU CREDIT IN YOUR CHOICE OF 11 DISCIPLINES
Attendees can earn CME/CEU credits by participating in instructional courses, plenary sessions, symposia, lectures, moderated panel discussions, lunch programs and some special events, as noted.
Professional Education Services Group (PESG) in cooperation with ACRM has accredited these activities for continuing education credits for health professionals on the rehabilitation team. A single processing fee ($95 USD) entitles attendees to all certificates for which they qualify. Due to the interdisciplinary emphasis of this conference, only about a third of attendees are typically required to earn CME/CEU credit annually. For this reason, ACRM does not automatically roll this cost into the price of registration. Only attendees who require CME/CEU credit will incur this processing fee.
CME/CEU credit will be available for the following health professionals:
- Physician (ACCME)
- Nurse (ANCC)
- Case Manager (CCM)
- Rehabilitation Psychology
- Certified Rehab Counselors (CCRC)
- Occupational Therapy
- Physical Therapy
- Speech Pathologist (ASHA)
- Disability Management Specialist
- Health Care Executives (ACHE)
- Dieticians (CDR)
A general participant certificate is also available for other conference attendees indicating the number of education credits earned. This form may be submitted to organizations or professional accrediting bodies as proof of attendance.
