Learning Health Systems Rehabilitation Research Network (LeaRRn) and the National Pediatric Rehabilitation Resource Center (C-PROGRESS)
LEARNING HEALTH SYSTEMS REHABILITATION RESEARCH NETWORK (LeaRRn)'s overarching objective is to establish a national resource network to advance stakeholder-partnered, rehabilitation learning health system research to improve quality of care, demonstrate value, and enhance patient and system outcomes. LeaRRn will provide training to promote 7 core LHS research competencies: (1) using a system science approach, (2) asking meaningful questions, (3) applying appropriate research methods, (4) capitalizing on informatics, (5) championing research ethics, (6) optimizing quality improvement and implementation science, and (7) engagement, leadership and research management. Find out more about LeaRRn in our brochure below, and be sure to register for the first session of our webinar series launching on October 27th - Essence of the Learning Health System with Dr. Charles P. Friedman.
THE NATIONAL PEDIATRIC REHABILITATION RESOURCE CENTER (C-PROGRESS) helps clinical scientists studying pediatric rehabilitation by funding pilot studies, providing mentorship, and offering training and tools to support clinical trials research. C-PROGRESS stands for the Center for Pediatric Rehabilitation: Growing Research, Education, and Sharing Science, the center’s primary objective is to “see progress” in the emerging field of pediatric rehabilitation science.
C-PROGRESS is engaged in the development of promising techniques that address critical gaps in methods or technology in the field of pediatric rehabilitation. Pediatric rehabilitation research would benefit immensely from more sensitive, valid, and reliable approaches to measuring the emergence of new skills and their use in everyday function. Many tools currently in the new Common Data Elements for cerebral palsy were developed initially for typically developing children. Our C-PROGRESS scientists have been active in developing and validating novel assessment tools, from kinematics to parent reporting tools, and created the first Fidelity of Treatment tools for pediatric constraint-induced movement therapy and bimanual treatments.
