Symposium Summary:

This symposium, a pre-course to the 2008 ACRM-ASNR Joint Educational Conference, examined the construct of participation.  Participation is a key outcome of the rehabilitation process following an injury or impairment, but has been a difficult concept to measure.  The following presentations highlight the state of the art in participation measurement by integrating theory and measurement.
