Panel Discussion
One of the priorities of the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR)is to encourage researchers from all health and health related organizations to consider its mission and research priorities as they seek support for their research proposals. The purpose of this session is to outreach to researchers in public health with information about NCMRR's programs, providing the public health researcher with a new opportunity for funding. Of particular significance are the following NCMRR priority areas of research: assessing the efficacy and outcomes to medical rehabilitation therapies and practices; developing more precise methods of measuring impairments, disabilities, and societal and functional limitations; and training research scientists in the field of rehabilitation.
Session Objectives: List three priorities for research supported by the National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR)that have implications for public health. Identify four research projects that impact the lives of individuals with disabilities.
