American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Patient Education

The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine (ACRM) is an organization of rehabilitation professionals dedicated to serving people with disabling conditions by supporting research that:

    • promotes health, independence, productivity, and quality of life,
    • meets the needs of rehabilitation clinicians and people with disabilities.

In order to enhance current and future research and knowledge translation, ACRM:

  • assists researchers in improving their investigations and dissemination of findings
  • educates providers to deliver best practices, and
  • advocates for funding of future rehabilitation research.

The ACRM is a global community of both researchers and consumers of research, in the field of rehabilitation. ACRM is the only professional association representing all members of the interdisciplinary rehabilitation team, including: physicians, psychologists, rehabilitation nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech therapists, recreation specialists, case managers, rehabilitation counselors, vocational counselors, and disability management specialists.

The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine Communications Committee has developed a series of articles designed to provide consumer-friendly information on topics relevant to rehabilitation medicine. Examples are below:
