Why should I subscribe?

  • Keep you updated on important issues in the field of SCI (news, conferences, educational resources, etc.).

  • Subscription provides you with free access to our discussion forum.  This feature can be used to exchange important ideas or get tips on your own research/program evaluation.

  • Subscribers can send in requests to have postings included in the newsletter*.  The site average over 5,000 visitors a month (and is growing) - this is an excellent venue for mobilizing knowledge about your research to a diverse group of stakeholders from all over the world.

The PAR-QoL website was designed to serve as an educational resource for professionals working in the field of SCI to learn about quality of life outcome measures.  We hope that additional features, such as the newsletter, will provide up-to-date information to the larger SCI community on what is available to advance science and improve quality of life.  We invite you to explore our site!  Please share this announcement widely!
