International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation

International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation

The International Encyclopedia of Rehabilitation is a collaborative effort from the Center for International Rehabilitation Research Information and Exchange (CIRRIE), at the University at Buffalo, SUNY, and the Laboratoire d'informatique et de terminologie de la réadaptation et de l'intégation sociale (LITRIS), from the Institut de réadaptation en déficience physique de Québec (IRDPQ).

On its completion, the encyclopedia will include four hundred articles on rehabilitation and disability topics identified through terms found in the CIRRIE and REHABDATA Thesauri, the World Health Organization's International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF) and the International Index and Dictionary of Rehabilitation and Social Integration (IIDRIS).

Links among the encyclopedia, CIRRIE and REHABDATA databases, the dictionary and other databases will create an integrated information system and a comprehensive synthesis of the field of rehabilitation in a free, accessible, online, multilingual encyclopedia in English, French, and Spanish.
