National SCI Care Strategy

Leveraging our national reach and role leading collaboration in SCI research and care, Praxis is facilitating the development of the National Strategy for SCI Care.

This is the breadcrumbs block. Breadcrumb will populate on actual page.

Co-Create From The Start

Praxis is bringing together people within the SCI community and beyond to draw on evidence and expert knowledge to co-create a vision and build the National Strategy for SCI Care. While Praxis is well-positioned to facilitate the process of strategy development, the strategy reflects the voices heard by the community.

One of Praxis’ key goals is to optimize the care that Canadians with traumatic and non-traumatic SCI receive across the SCI continuum of care (pre‐hospital, acute, rehabilitation, community).

Creating A National Strategy

A national strategy for health, care and wellness will serve as the means to provide programmatic, research, and policy coherence to a community of organizations that are spread across the country operating largely within provincial contexts. It will provide guidance for setting care standards, research priorities, identification in gaps and opportunities in the system, and support identification of promising tools and practices. A national strategy will align the  prevention, care, and the supportive living needs across the lifespan and spectrum of services and provide a unified focus across the different health jurisdictions across Canada, while recognizing the distinctive priorities that exist within each region.

The Role Of Praxis

We act as a backbone organization to the strategy developing by:

  • Sharing the knowledge and perspective of local, regional and national initiatives to create alignment of activities and efforts across the country
  • Providing a skillset in knowledge translation, consumer engagement and network development
  • Providing resources to support implementation and evaluation


Join Us

We are looking for champions and partner organization to join us in co-creating this national strategy.
