Abstract:
Many people with SCI tell us that the first year after discharge from rehabilitation is very difficult because they have so many questions and new problems to solve but don’t always know where to find the information they need. To address this, we designed a study to determine whether providing regularly scheduled telephone follow-up calls to people with SCI after discharge can help them get the care they need, solve problems that arise, and avoid the medical complications that people often experience during their first year after SCI.
