Summary of NIH Research Plan On Rehabilitation.
Millions of Americans have been found to have been with different forms of disabilities, which seem so severe that they face many challenges when conducting their daily duties, especially when going to work or taking care of themselves (Jackson & Cernich, 2020). many research has found that many people living with disabilities have been injured in accidents, born with disabilities, deployed disabilities over time, or while they have been affected during wars. Rehabilitation research conducted by NIH focused on exploring the intricate biology of disabilities. It perhaps sought to find lasting solutions in restoring some of the lost functions and helping people living with disabilities reach their full potential.
NIH’s 5-year plan’s main focus is to layout priorities in medical rehabilitation and guides rehabilitation medicine that will benefit many people. NIH research was based on qualitative evidence-based approaches that aimed to address challenges and perhaps generate consistent clinical data from various disability conditions where data sharing and translation will be encouraged (Jackson & Cernich, 2020). The main purpose of the NIH on research plan on rehabilitation includes studying the mechanisms, methods to improve disability challenges, establishing appropriate interventions to help most affected individual and families, provide the most applicable methods of improving, restoring, or even replacing underdeveloped, lost, and deteriorating functions among individuals living with disabilities within the context of their environment.
Additionally, the research also aimed to formulate ways in which disabled people in the community can be helped to participate in society building fully and perhaps be made feel oaky and satisfied with the quality of their life (Jackson & Cernich, 2020). The research deployed several questions focused on collecting data and other relevant details on the history of the families of people living with disabilities and symptoms and secondary challenges associated with disabilities.
