Abstract:
Study of health behaviors and health outcomes among a sample of Native American men with spinal cord injury (SCI). Data are from telephone interviews or mail surveys of 76 Native American men with traumatic SCI at least 1 year in duration. Comparisons were made to Native American men without SCI based on national BRFSS data. Differences between the 2 groups were found in reported health status, satisfaction with health care, health behaviors such as receipt of inoculations and screening tests, and alcohol use.
