NRRTS Now Known as iNRRTS
The organization formerly known as the National Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers (NRRTS) has changed its name to iNRRTS to reflect its international reach and scope.
In a Jan. 8 news announcement, iNRRTS President Carey Britton, ATP/SMS, CRTS, said, “The additions of Canadian and Australian suppliers to the Registry has made it clear to us that the need for quality Complex Rehabilitation Technology (CRT) does not stop at a geographical boundary. We are excited to announce our new trade names, iNRRTS and International Registry of Rehabilitation Technology Suppliers, which reflect our commitment to advancing the field of CRT globally. We believe that iNRRTS will help us to be recognized for promoting the highest standards of professionalism, ethics, and service delivery for the benefit of people with disabilities everywhere.”
Rare Disease Survey Now Open
Bionews, an informational and support community for people living with rare diseases, is seeking patients and caregivers in the United States to take its Rare Disease Survey. Information gathered by the survey will ultimately be used to better understand diagnoses, treatments, and daily life experiences; to provide information that can help people living with rare diseases to advocate for themselves; and to strengthen bonds in the rare disease community.
Reponses will be kept confidential, with findings reported in the aggregate only. Survey results will be published as part of Rare Disease Day, Feb. 29.
