The Journal of Pediatric Rehabilitation Medicine (JPRM): An Interdisciplinary Approach Throughout the Lifespan is designed to parallel the multidisciplinary teams caring for children, adolescents and adults with childhood-onset physical disabilities and complex care needs worldwide. Published quarterly, topics include, and are not limited to, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, spina bifida, limb deficiency, muscular dystrophy, stroke, cancer, developmental delays, and rare disorders. Furthermore, the journal welcomes papers dedicated to pediatric rehabilitation from a global health perspective.
The aim of JPRM is to engage a diverse group of international experts with the goal of providing readers with comprehensive information regarding children and adolescents requiring rehabilitation. JPRM brings together specialists from medicine, nursing, psychology, social work, nutrition, child life, family centered care, and occupational, physical, and speech therapy. For manuscript submissions, authorship involving at least two different specialties is encouraged, although not required, to facilitate a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach. Manuscripts are blinded and peer reviewed including biostatistical analysis. Authors are invited to submit original research, systematic and scoping reviews, guidelines, protocols, care pathways, case reports, book reviews, commentaries, editorials, and dates for future conferences.
Abstract: As with the wide range in spina bifida (SB) incidence rates across nations, there is also wide variance in topics encountered by clinicians today. Both the wide variance in SB incidence rates and the wide diversity of topics to be addressed provide the backdrop for any dialogue among professionals serving this population. On the international stage, the World Congress on Spina Bifida Research and Care has been the only conference dedicated solely to research, practical challenges, and real-life solutions for those living with SB, their families, and caregivers. As a conference with a clear sense of the growing global village,…the 2023 congress showcased innovative research from junior to preeminent investigators. Topical areas included urology, neurosurgery, global health, prenatal surgery, and transition to adult care amid others. Ultimately, through the dissemination of a compendium of conference abstracts, we hope that professionals will be aided and inspired to continue to improve the education, advocacy, and care among the many communities of individuals affected by SB globally.
