Resources for spinal cord injury (SCI) professionals, and for people living with SCI and their families

It is amazing the knowledge and resources that have become available on-line for the spinal cord injury (SCI) community. One of the goals of the PAR-QoL site is to highlight websites that can help support clinical practice, and help people with SCI and their families participate in their communities. Below are a few resources that you may find useful.

The International Network of SCI physiotherapists (SCIPT) is a not-for-profit initiative of physiotherapists worldwide. It is for physiotherapists working in the area of spinal cord injuries although other physiotherapists are welcome to join. See their site at: http://www.scipt.org/

The Caregiver Chronicles is a series of videos that feature interviews with caregivers, each of whom has a partner with some form of paralysis. Each caregiver's situation is different. Each has a unique set of challenges, hopes, strengths and solutions. These videos were produced by the Christopher Reeve Foundation. To see the videos, click here.

Pushrim is a social network and support resource for friends, families, and people living with SCI.
