The general objective of the "Rehabilitation Medicine Summit: Building Research Capacity" was to advance and promote research in medical rehabilitation by making recommendations to expand research capacity. The 5 elements of research capacity that guided the discussions were researchers; research culture, environment, and infrastructure; funding; partnerships; and metrics. Participants included representatives of professional organizations, consumer groups, academic departments, researchers, governmental funding agencies, and the private sector. Small group discussions and plenary sessions generated an array of problems, possible solutions, and recommended actions. A post-Summit, multiorganizational initiative is called for to pursue the agendas outlined in this report.
