Project Description: 

New Editions provides technical and logistical support for a national expert panel composed to assist the NIH Rehabilitation Medicine Department develop a holistic definition of adults with chronic health care needs that can be used in national surveys and clinical settings. We are assisting the Epidemiology and Biostatistics Section of the NIH Rehabilitation Medicine Department in an important initiative to provide the field with a new focal point for measurement, surveillance and service—a non-categorical, holistic definition of adults who require ongoing medical, functional or mental health services or supports in order to maximize their well-being and participation.

Experts will help develop a formal, population-level definition of adults with chronic health care needs, define key subgroups and develop screening questions for inclusion in national surveys and clinical settings. We will enlist the expert team of scientists, identify and manage relevant research articles, design and maintain an interactive website for panel members, convene regularly scheduled teleconferences and manage one in-person meeting per year.
