The SCIRehab Project

The SCIRehab Project

There is a very interesting on-going project examining the rehabilitation process.

Often research looks at rehabilitation of spinal cord injury (SCI) as a whole rather than specifics such as therapy interventions, medical procedures, patient education, or counseling. The SCIRehab project uses practice-based evidence (PBE) research to identify which rehabilitation interventions are associated with positive outcomes in randomized controlled trials (RCTs). The project provides information on all rehabilitation disciplines and also adds to guidelines for clinical decision-making. Including 1,200 participants having SCI in 6 varying US inpatient rehabilitation facilities, the SCIRehab project allows clinicians to document their interventions in handheld digital assistants after seeing their patients. After characteristics of the patient, injury and treatment are taken from these records, process elements  will be related to outcomes.
