RIC Lecture & Tour
#843 Re-Imagining Rehabilitation Care and Research at AbilityLab: The Future of RIC
TUE 1 NOV
Participants will independently commute to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago at 345 E Superior Street (2 miles from the Hilton) to learn about a new approach to clinical research and patient care that informed the design of the new research hospital, AbilityLab, scheduled to open in March 2017. By literally breaking down the walls between science and clinical care, RIC is making a $550 million investment to change the way research is conducted, accelerate clinical breakthroughs, and improve patient outcomes.
Hear directly from the researchers and clinicians who built this advanced knowledge translation concept over the past 7 years, and Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Joanne C. Smith, who will discuss how these innovations are being adopted in the new hospital. Participants will have the opportunity to tour the AbilityLab prototype on the 9th floor of RIC.
