Abstract:
Study identifies predictors of personal care assistance (PCA) use among people with spinal cord injury (SCI). Data regarding potential predictors of PCA use and outcome measures of daily hours of paid, unpaid, and occasional PCA services were taken from the National Spinal Cord Injury Database. The ability to perform activities of daily living was found to be the strongest predictor of PCA use among people with SCI.
