NEW ACRM Pain Group Now Forming

Get involved with the NEW ACRM Interdisciplinary Pain Rehabilitation Group at the ground-floor and help identify the key rehabilitation issues the group will address. Recruit colleagues in the field, or step into a leadership role as chair of a task force. If you participate in a VA Interdisciplinary Pain Rehabilitation (IPR) program that requires CARF accreditation, this ACRM group would be highly beneficial. The group provides opportunities to interact and collaborate with pain researchers and providers. Learn about current evidence-based practice, professional consensus, and clinical guidelines to assist in meeting the CARF standards.


Contact the chair, Lorraine Riche, BMR, PT, DipMDT, MPA to learn more and get involved.
