Objectives of the Committee on Rehabilitation

JAMA. 1965;194(1):95. doi:10.1001/jama.1965.03090140103034

The Committee on Rehabilitation was created in 1956 as an intra-association liaison committee composed of members appointed from American Medical Association councils which had a direct concern with rehabilitation. The Committee's goals and objectives were published in a 1957 "Report of the Committee on Rehabilitation," which has served as a guide in carrying out numerous projects since that time.1

Major past Committee activities have included the preparation of a color motion picture film, "Rehabilitation Adds Life to Years"; the development of recommendations for medical association programs on rehabilitation, and the publication of "Medicine's Back-to-Work Plan—Medical Society Action in Rehabilitation"; the publication of an annual survey report on state association committees concerned with rehabilitation and the availability of local service directories; the publication of a series of short informative articles on many aspects of rehabilitation; and the conduct of numerous liaison meetings with other national, private, and governmental organizations concerned
