Abstract:
Study examining the role of selected factors such as age, time since injury, and neurological status on the health-related quality of life (QOL) and life satisfaction of women with spinal cord injury (SCI), and comparing the role of these factors in men and women with SCI. Data from 580 women and 2,307 men in the SCI Model System Database were analyzed. Findings suggest that women with SCI reported lower levels of mental health-related QOL but greater overall life satisfaction than men. Older women with SCI reported lower physical health QOL compared to younger women.
