Patient Experiences Following Spinal Cord Injury

8 September, 2015

Researchers from the School of Public Health and Preventive Medicine at Monash University, with the help of Spire, are looking for people living with spinal cord injury who would be willing to discuss their experiences of managing conditions that develop after spinal cord injury; such as pressure areas and bladder problems.

As conditions that develop after spinal cord injury can be challenging to manage, they would like to gather information on services used, information provided, interactions with health workers; as well as any social, work and financial impacts relating to the management of these conditions.

Information gathered from this project will be beneficial in improving understanding of the conditions that develop after spinal cord injury, how they impact on people’s lives and whether care needs are being met. The findings will be used to inform improvements in the delivery of care.

Involvement will consist of a one-off telephone interview at a time and place that is convenient for the participant.
