Abstract:
Study examined differences in the environmental barriers and levels of community integration reported by men and women with spinal cord injury (SCI). A sample of 2,048 patients participating in the Model Spinal Cord Injury Care System was studied. The Craig Handicap Assessment and Reporting Technique (CHART) was used to assess community integration and the Craig Hospital Inventory of Environmental Factors was used to assess barriers. Analyses of these measures revealed that women reported experiencing environmental barriers more frequently than men. Gender differences were found for the occupation scale of the CHART but not for its other scales.
