From My Perspective: Blog Posts From Around the World About Rehabilitation Following Spinal Cord Injury


As part of a grant to study how differences in acute care and rehabilitation length of stay affect outcomes for people with spinal cord injury in different countries, the Center for Rehabilitation Outcomes Research has collected blog posts by people with SCI in different countries about their injuries and rehabilitation. In these posts, writers from the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and The Netherlands share reflections on their unique inpatient rehabilitation experiences, what worked, what they wanted more (or less) of in rehabilitation, what it was like going home, and how they are doing today. 

The grant is funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (grant 90DPHF0012).
