Dear AJPM&R readers,
This issue of the AJPM&R includes six Original Research Articles. Four include results of studies with an emphasis on the always-important topic of functional outcomes. Two aspects of cancer rehabilitation are discussed in the other two Original Research Articles. One of these articles evaluates a new tool for functional evaluation, and the other is a meta-analysis of the benefits of exercise in cancer fatigue. For those involved in resident education, an article on competencies for interventional pain management is an essential read!
