Join us for CARE Week May 16-20th
Clinical Application of Research & Evidence Week at RHI
One outstanding facet of RHI's world-class rehab culture includes conducting clinical research and implementing cutting-edge, evidence-based interventions into the services we provide patients. In doing so, we strive to provide the best care possible to our patients while also helping to advance rehabilitation science through interdisciplinary collaboration. The goals of CARE Week are to showcase these efforts and the value they bring to RHI patients; to stimulate awareness, learning, and collaboration; and to inspire all to be engaged in helping advance CARE-related efforts at RHI.
CARE Week will take place May 16th through May 20th. Stay tuned for more details on times and location. Activities will include scholarly e-posters and oral presentations, roundtable discussions, and keynote speakers.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The event is all virtual! We have daily keynote speakers presenting virtually and live Monday-Thursday. They will be recorded, so if you can’t make the live presentation time, you can watch afterwards in our playlist.
CARE Week is an opportunity for RHI colleagues to share their work in research and evidence-based implementation. This is an opportunity to reflect on how this not only aligns with each of our fields, but to understand what our colleagues are doing in healthcare to better speak to and promote our practices.
CARE Week is a FREE event!
Presenters are eligible for one of two awards:
- Embracing Innovation (Research-Oriented)
- Driving Change (Evidence-Implementation)
Viewers/attendees are also eligible for one of two Reflection Raffle awards ($250 continuing education certificate/award). Reflection Raffle selections will be based upon the submitted thoughtful, reflective responses provided. The greater number of thoughtful, reflective responses will increase chances of winning. All CARE Week awards are sponsored by the RHI Foundation in support of continuing education.
There will be 29 pre-recorded presentations from your friends and colleagues. Presentations will range from 5-15 minutes. These will be added to the site May 9th and archived for your viewing any time after CARE Week.
Day of Reflection will occur on May 20th as a celebration of CARE Week to promote and empower reflective practice. Reflective practice guides on-going learning, improves motivation and the quality of care we provide. This day serves as an opportunity to discuss our reflections of the presentations viewed, why they were important to each of us and identify what our next steps will be, individually and as a team. Be sure to visit the Main Conference Room from 11:00am – 2:00pm to join the celebration!
