Evaluation of an online knowledge resource for people with SCI

Researcher(s): Dr. Janice Eng

We are interested in evaluating a website that provides information about living with a spinal cord injury (SCI). This study will involve using a website on your own device for a period of four weeks and participating in a 30 to 60 minute interview by phone or at the GF Strong Rehabilitation Center (4255 Laurel Street, Vancouver, BC).

You may be able to participate if you:

  • are above 19 years of age
  • are a person living with spinal cord injury, or a caregiver (family member or partner)
  • are able to use a website on your own (by smartphone, tablet, or computer)
  • are able to participate in a 30 to 60 minute in-person or telephone interview in English
