INFORM (INternational Framework fOr Rehabilitation Medics)


INFORM is a Task Force of the International Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ISPRM) to undertake a collaborative project that aims to unify and strengthen the medical specialty of physicians working in the field of rehabilitation. This effort is run in coordination with the European Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (ESPRM) and the Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine Section and the Board of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS-PRM). 


The project comprises a series of consensus surveys and workshops involving all countries. We aim to focus on three aspects of the medical specialty


1)    Name of the specialty and medical specialist (project 1)

2)    Scope of practice (project 2)

3)    Training curriculum for doctors in training in the specialty (project 3)
