An Overview of Pediatric Spinal Cord Injury in Canada

The incidence of pediatric spinal cord injury (SCI) is relatively low; however, the consequences are devastating with substantial impact on young people living with the condition, their families, the health care system and society. To date, most of the research and evidence available has focused on SCI in adults. Through the support of a philanthropic donor, Praxis conducted the first Canadian environmental scan of pediatric SCI research and care. The goal was to improve the understanding of pediatric SCI and identify priority knowledge gaps.

This report serves as a starting point for future planning in both research and care. One of the strongest themes presented in the report is the need to establish a pediatric SCI network that would bring together Canadian pediatric SCI stakeholders and provide an appropriate channel for knowledge sharing and collaboration on topics with a national relevance.

Praxis is committed to continuing to advance future planning and strategic collaboration in this important area to ultimately improve the health and well-being of children living with SCI.
