Summary View help for Summary
The SCIRehab study collected data about 1,376 people with spinal cord injury across 7 disciplines at 6 facilities in the United States between 2007 and 2009 and followed for one year (until 2010). The 7 disciplines included in the study are Physical Therapy, and Occupational Therapy, Psychology, Therapeutic Recreation, Social Work, Nursing, and Speech Language Pathology. These data include information gathered during 462,455 timed rehabilitation interventions in 282,999 treatment sessions provided by 1,094 clinicians. This study seeks to understand the relationship between rehabilitation and outcomes and used practice-based evidence methods to relate the details of the rehabilitation process to outcomes after controlling for individual demographic and injury characteristics. The 13 key outcomes include function and residence at discharge, 6 months and 1 year post injury, rehospitalization in the first year, 4 dimensions of societal participation, work or school attendance, depression, presence of pressure ulcers, and life satisfaction at 6 months and 1 year post injury.
