Neither “What’s in a name?” nor “Nomen omen”, but a unique identifier. A call for a single international name for the speciality and the specialist in PRM, PM&R, RM, Physiatry or other
European Journal of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine 2022 December;58(6):787-9

We do not have a solution to propose as Journal, and the EJPRM does not have preferences (even if we have our individual ones). Simply, we do not want the situation to remain as it is now, and we want to promote a change making the issue global and finally reaching a decision, whatever it will be.
We call for action the global PRM community to define and use:
• a single international name for the speciality;
• a simple, straightforward, usable name for the specialist working in the field.
