A Co-Created Community Initiative

In 2019, Praxis started an engagement process to create a national care strategy by building on the strengths and collective wisdom of the spinal cord injury (SCI) community across Canada. Based on community consultation, this process led to Being Bold: Toward a National Spinal Cord Injury Care, Health & Wellness Strategy Discussion Document & Consultation Report, a discussion document. What followed was the community report SCI Care for Canada: A Framework for Strategy and Action, which lays out a framework for an actionable National SCI Care Strategy, which lays out a framework for an actionable National SCI Care Strategy.

The meaningful engagement of people with spinal cord injury in the process leading up to the development of the report ensures it is relevant and has impact. As a result, the SCI Care Strategic Framework enhances understanding of what works for SCI care and in what context. It has the potential to accelerate learning from one care setting, region or environment to another.
