SCIRE: Spinal Cord Injury Research Evidence





The Spinal Cord Injury Research Evidence (SCIRE) Project is dedicated to providing up-to-date, accurate information about the effects of rehabilitation for people with SCI.

SCIRE staff review and rate the research on spinal cord injury and put the results on the web, eliminating the need to search and screen individual databases. The main SCIRE website, SCIRE Professional, has recently been re-developed to be easier to use with much improved navigation and more visual content to illustrate the work. It is available for free online and is accessible from around the world. To date, SCIRE Professional has had over 2 million users from over 180 countries. The latest version of SCIRE Professional has more clinically relevant content such as instructional videos, toolkits, treatment algorithms, and clinical practice guidelines to help clinicians provide best-practice specialized rehabilitation care to patients. Content is continually updated and will include new topics and findings in the SCI field.

In addition to the new SCIRE Professional website, visit our companion site, SCIRE Community, an online resource for people living with SCI, and their family members, friends, or caregivers. In operation since 2017, SCIRE Community has a great deal of current SCI evidence and resources written in everyday language because the best scientific evidence should be accessible to everyone.

The Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Evidence Project developed from a research collaboration between Vancouver and London (Ontario) and involved their respective health centres (GF Strong Rehab Centre, St. Joseph’s Health Care), research institutions (International Collaboration on Repair Discoveries, Vancouver Coastal Health Research Institute, Lawson Health Research Institute) and universities (University of British Columbia, University of Western Ontario).
