About This Site

REHAB+ is a service made available by McMaster University's School of Rehabilitation Science in collaboration with the DeGroote School of Medicine's Department of Clinical Epidemiology and Biostatistics Health Information Research Unit. It incorporates the McMasterPLUSTM email alerting system and searchable database of best evidence from the health care literature of particular interest to rehabilitation professionals. It is supported in part by a grant from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research.

Users of REHAB+ with interests in a specific clinical problem or treatment are invited to use Search to look up topics covered in the McMasterPLUSTM database starting from mid-2007.

Occupational and physical therapists are invited to register their interests so that they can receive email alerts and searching access for literature that is matched to their personal clinical interests.
