Dear Rehabilitation Measures Database User,
Since its inception in January 2011, the Rehabilitation Measures Database (RMD) has become a wisely used and trusted source of information on outcome measures suitable for use with rehabilitation patients. This resource was funded initially by the U.S. Department of Education, National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR); subsequently, we’ve received additional funding from the Retirement Research Foundation and the Paralyzed Veterans of America to enhance RMD’s content and educational resources. NIDRR provided funding through a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Improving Measurement of Medical Rehabilitation Outcomes; this Center is funded through September 2014.
We want to assure the continued availability and growth of RMD. After exploring several options, we decided to provide users with an opportunity to support RMD directly. The “Support us | Give at RIC” button provides a link to the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, our home. Your generous contributions will be used exclusively to support RMD. Contributions are tax deductible to the extent allowed by U.S. law. In addition, we will display Google Ads on our home page to provide advertising revenue. We get paid when you “click through” on an advertisement.
We are dedicated to maintaining and growing RMD, and maintaining your trust. It is our plan to sustain RMD with your donations and the advertising revenue you help generate.
Thank you for your continuing support,
Allen W. Heinemann, PhD, ABPP (RP), FACRM
Project Director, Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Improving Measurement of Medical Rehabilitation Outcomes
