Center for Rehabilitation
Research using Large
Datasets
The goal of the Center is to build
rehabilitation research capacity by
increasing the quantity and quality of
rehabilitation outcomes research
using large administrative and
research datasets.
Need for the Center
• Rehabilitation investigators are trained to
conduct (prospective) clinical, patientoriented research, not secondary data
analysis
• A large number of datasets are available
that include information related to
rehabilitation and disability
• Advances in bioinformatics, information
technology and the internet have resulted
in easier access to aggregated information
CRRLD Consortium Partners
• Rehabilitation Sciences Academic
Division & Research Center (University of
Texas Medical Branch)
• Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes
Research (Rehabilitation Institute of
Chicago)
• Uniform Data System for Medical
Rehabilitation (University at Buffalo)
• Employment and Disability Institute

 Web Site  Database Directory  Algorithm Repository
Activities
• Raise Awareness. Seminars and workshops
designed to raise awareness among investigators,
educators, and practitioners regarding the
importance of secondary data analysis. These will
be presented at professional meetings and
conferences.
• Web Site. Establish a website that will provide
information generated from Center activities and
programs. For example, training materials and
modules will be available on the web.
http://rehabsciences.utmb.edu/r24
http://rehabsciences.utmb.edu/r24
Activities
• Education and Training. Create training materials &
modules related to large database research.
Examples: 1) Security, privacy and IRB issues; 2)
Data management (general); and 3) Methods of data
analysis including missing data and selection bias.
• Data Directory. Develop a directory of existing
datasets including descriptions of how to access
the information, a listing of the variables contained
in the dataset, the purpose of the dataset, and
contact information.
Activities
• Visiting Scholars Program. Rehabilitation
investigators will work with experienced scientists
at one of the consortium institutions, using large
datasets to address questions important to
rehabilitation and disability outcomes. Support is
provided up to six months.
• Pilot Project Program. Funding available for pilot
studies in which rehabilitation investigators
conduct research in collaboration with a CRRLD
mentor/collaborator using a large dataset.
Pilot Studies
• Functional Independence and Healthcare Experiences
Following Discharge from Inpatient Rehabilitation

Doing outcomes
research is a lot like
raising children… you
always think you are
going to do a better job
next time.
