Domestic and International Trends in Rehabilitation Research:
A Comparative Analysis

About the Webcast

Staff from the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE) discuss findings from a recently conducted study--a comparative analysis of domestic and international trends in rehabilitation research. This study generated lists from the CIRRIE and Rehabdata databases to compare trends in rehabilitation research. Results focused on similarities and differences among rehabilitation researchers in the U.S. and abroad. Identifying trending disabilities in a region or a specific country may point to policy and funding priorities of that region.
