Current Issue Introduction

November 2016

Dear AJPM&R readers,  

This issue of the AJPM&R includes an article and a commentary on the topic of transfers back to acute care from an inpatient rehabilitation facility. Reducing avoidable complications and errors in the IRF setting will ultimately reduce transfers and also enhance the quality of care. Also note the 2 articles on issues related to wheelchair utilization: exercise training and fitness in older adults using wheelchairs and health of shoulder muscles with repeated wheelchair transfers. Our literature review as well as the online-only section highlight the utilization of sonography in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral neuromuscular disorders. Enjoy!
