What reasons might someone have for developing research? 1. to develop a body of knowledge for the rehabilitation professions; 2. to determine whether interventions work; 3. to improve patient and client care
What are some of the barriers to rehabilitation research? 1. lack of funds 2. lack of research mentors 3. lack of time 4. lack of familiarity with the research process 5. lack of statistical support 6. ethical concerns about use of human participants and animal subjects 7. the clinician-researcher dichotomy
What is the "Clinician-Researcher Dichotomy"? the belief that clinicians and researchers have little in common.
What are the ways in which researchers can overcome the barriers? 1. to develop productive research teams composed of individuals who, together, have all the diverse skills needed to plan, implement, analyze, and report research. 2. development of the 'Scientist-Practitioner'.
