The Rehabilitation Treatment Specification System (RTSS) is a conceptual framework whose use is hypothesized to provide benefits across the scope of rehabilitation in the areas of education, clinical practice, and research. This symposium will review implementation projects that have used the RTSS in these domains. For each of these areas, the audience will be engaged in discussion to help identify additional promising applications and future directions for implementation of the RTSS. Participants will be encouraged to consider how the use of the RTSS might impact their area of rehabilitation, and resources to assist with implementation will be identified.
