Abstract:
Reviews tools that have been or may be used to measure the outcomes of spinal cord injury (SCI), in order to illustrate how the principles and practices of outcome research can be applied to the sequelae of a specific disability. Reviews databases, generic outcome measures, condition-specific outcome measures for SCI, and tools measuring pain, psychologic distress, and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). Special attention was paid to data sources, the need for methodological accommodations, the research balance between generic and condition-specific measures, and outcome measurements particularly relevant to persons with SCI.
