Abstract

The viability of group treatment in inpatient rehabilitation facilities (IRFs) is at a crossroads. While the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has not yet established standards for group therapy in IRFs, they have stated that the standard for care in these settings is individualized therapy (Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, 2009). CMS limitations of the size and frequency of group therapy in other settings suggests that CMS believes group treatment is of a lesser quality when compared with individual treatment. This is a critical time for research demonstrating the unique benefits of SLP group treatment in acute rehabilitation
