Rehabilitation Discussion Group - Who Are We?

The OARSI Rehabilitation Discussion Group aims to bring together a network of researchers and clinicians who share a common interest in the rehabilitation of people with osteoarthritis. With over 50 members, we endeavor to provide a forum for communication, networking, information sharing, and discussion and collaboration for osteoarthritis researchers working in the rehabilitation field. We work to facilitate the development and implementation of high-quality research in rehabilitation, and contribute to mentoring of early career researchers in the rehabilitation area to increase research capacity.
