Project title: Improving Self-Management Skills among People with Spinal Cord Injury

Principal Investigator: Dr. Ben Mortenson

Co-Investigators: Dr. Patricia Mills, Dr. Bonita Sawatzky

Program: PSR Studies and Demonstration Projects

Institution: University of British Columbia

Our goal is to evaluate the efficacy of a broad-based self-management application (“app”) we have developed to facilitate the improvement of self-management skills among community-dwelling individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI). The primary outcome is attainment of self-selected self-management goals. Secondary outcomes include general and self-management self-efficacy, secondary conditions related to SCI, self-reported healthcare utilization, self-reported health events, and app usage data.
