The University of Michigan Medical Center and the Ann Arbor Center of Independent Living (AACIL) provide an example of a cooperative relationship.
As described in a comprehensive program manual, staff for the "Hospital to Community" program included a Community-based IL specialist from the AACIL, trained Peer Resource Consultants (PRCs) from the community, and a Hospital-based IL specialist who had a background in rehabilitation counseling or occupational therapy and who possessed unique knowledge about independent living issues (Rasmussen, Tate, Casoglos, Wolf, Maynard & Magyar, 1989).
Being multi-modal in design, the program consists of (a) educational classes that were taught by AACIL staff and rehabilitation counselors about employment housing, personal care attendant management, leisure and recreation, advocacy and benefits; (b) group support sessions that were jointly led by the Hospital IL specialist and the Community-based specialist on topics such as adjustment to disability, problem solving skills and sexuality; (c) community trips selected and arranged by the patient; (d) peer resource consultant meetings; (e) and patients' attendance at their own hospital chart rounds meetings.
