Session Description

Abstract: 

This session will summarize data from over 150 practitioners, researchers, and policy makers who were queried in July 2016 regarding development of a national AT outcomes measurement system. Data were collected in two venues: a 75-minute RESNA conference workshop and a 1-day AT Outcomes Summit. In both venues, participants worked in small groups that discussed questions posed by the organizers. The data were qualitatively analyzed and organized into themes that will be presented in this session. The discussion segment of this workshop will emphasize concrete next steps that can be taken by RESNA members and interested AT stakeholders.
