Cost: $Varies
Format: Webinar
Where: Online/Web-based

Sponsored By:

Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE)

Description:

Telerehabilitation is an effective health delivery method for patients with a variety of health conditions. Employment rates of Veterans are lower than civilian rates, and the employment gap is higher for Veterans living in rural areas. The results of this study showed that telerehabilitation is a viable means for remotely providing or enhancing face-to-face individualized and community-based vocational rehabilitation services that support individual’s competitive employment and job stability within their communities.

This webinar will provide a brief overview of Rural Veteran Tele-Rehabilitation Enterprise-Wide Initiative (RVTRI), which is one of one of two telerehabilitation initiatives funded by the Veteran Affairs Office of Rural Health (ORH). The webinar will also review the five important themes our investigation found as necessary in the implementation of the remote delivery of individualized community-based vocational rehabilitation services to persons in hard to reach places, including rural areas.
