Objective

Are you a care partner of someone with a spinal cord injury? 

Researchers at Shirley Ryan AbilityLab are recruiting for a virtual focus group to find out more about rehabilitation services and outcomes after spinal cord injury. The focus group is part of a research study that aims to expand knowledge about the experiences and outcomes of people living with spinal cord injuries, and how they are related to the length and intensity of rehabilitation services across countries based on findings from research. The purpose of the focus group is to learn how rehabilitation experiences and outcomes are related to rehabilitation length of stay across different countries.
