A Look at Traumatic Spinal Cord Injury in Canada in 2019

Published in 2021, The “Rick Hansen Spinal Cord Injury Registry – A look at traumatic spinal cord injury in Canada in 2019” is a detailed look at clinical and demographic data collected from 655 new RHSCIR participants in 2019.

In this report, you will find information about the type of injury, patient demographics, care pathway, length of hospital stay, secondary complications and social impacts after traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). This is a small subset of the data that RHSCIR collects, other information includes details about surgery and other interventions, detailed diagnosis information, functional outcomes such as walking proficiency and independence and services provided to participants. The report’s primary purpose is to serve as a descriptive account with no endorsement of, or recommendations about, policies or programs.

However, the data can be informative to research and clinical practice as well as policy and program planning. Data from this report provides researchers, health care providers and decision makers with knowledge that may support strategies to improve SCI care services within their institutions.
