The ASIA Rehab Standards Committee is comprised of an interdisciplinary group of highly energized rehabilitation professionals. The committee has worked on both print and electronic versions of the DME manual as well as consumer guidelines for choosing a rehabilitation facility. This committee is working on the latest addition to the ASIA E-Learning Center on the prevention and treatment of Pressure Injuries in individuals with Spinal Cord Injury. The Module will focus on an interdisciplinary approach to this challenging issue. We look forward to continuing to strive for best practices in the treatment of all individuals with SCI/D.
