Elsevier to Add Rehabilitation Skills to Existing Clinical Skills Offering to Benefit Larger Group of Health Professionals 

Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services, today announced that it will collaborate with the Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) in co-developing a collection of rehabilitation nursing skills for Elsevier Clinical Skills. Elsevier Clinical Skills offers over 1,300 skills that combine evidence-based content with robust competency management and empower clinicians to deliver high-quality patient care with confidence.

"ARN's mission focuses on the promotion and advancement of professional rehabilitation nursing practice through education that will ultimately enhance the quality of life for those affected by disability and chronic illness. Our members often state that rehabilitation nursing is not just a setting but rather a philosophy of care that, when practiced throughout the continuum of care, can improve patient outcomes," said ARN President Cheryl A. Lehman, PhD, RN, CRRN, CNS-BC, RN-BC. "The development of these skills is an important step in sharing the standards and practices in a variety of acute and post-acute settings."

With the Rehabilitation Skills collection, clinicians will improve the quality of life for those affected by disability and chronic illness by administering standardized, evidence-based care, according to Barbara Cullen, Vice President of Strategy and Product Development, Elsevier Clinical Solutions.

"Elsevier is thrilled to collaborate with the ARN in the development of these rehabilitation skills," Cullen said. "ARN's unique expertise in professional rehabilitation nursing will only enhance our existing skills collection and provide opportunity for more health professionals to benefit from Clinical Skills."
