Innovations in hearing loss detection & treatment

The current issue of the Journal of Rehabilitation Research and Development (JRRD), a publication of Rehabilitation Research and Development, Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), focuses on innovations in the detection and assessment of hearing loss and important research on home and community accessibility for users of wheelchairs and social integration of people with physical disabilities.

A single-topic issue on translational research in spinal cord injury was also published with this issue of JRRD. The supplement reports the proceedings of a conference, entitled "Translational Research in Spinal Cord Injury: Avoiding Potential Pitfalls," sponsored by the VA Center of Excellence in Spinal Cord Injury (SCI), the South Florida Model SCI System, and The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis. Manuscripts published in the single-topic issue discuss steps needed to move promising research related to SCI from labs into clinical trials. Full-text manuscripts are available, free of charge, on-line at www.vard.org.
