- People living with spinal cord injury (SCI) in North America are involved in the following as stake holders in research: identifying priorities for research; planning interventions; and implementing rehabilitation or peer-support interventions.
- The best practice is for partnerships to span the continuum of research.
- Project purpose: to collaborate with an advisory board of individuals living with SCI, to make recommendations for the methods of a large-scale calibration study of the Spinal Cord Injury Movement Index )SCI-MI).
- The SCI-MI is being developed as a SCI clinical trial outcome assessment to evaluate the construct of movement in the context of function using item-response theory.
