|Maintaining a safe environment for patients and providers is foremost on our minds. As restrictions subsided in many areas and lockdowns relaxed with no vaccine in sight, pediatric rehab providers were forced to re-evaluate the way face to face services are provided.|
|The IPRC invites all pediatric rehabilitation providers to join us as the group discusses ideas, practices, and policies related to face to face visits throughout an episode of care during a pandemic. Providers from all settings are encouraged to attend. |
