Empower Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Camp on Improving Daily Performance in People With SCI
The effect of the EmpowerSCI camp on improving occupational performance for individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI).
This study enrolls patients with a spinal cord injury (SCI) or their caregiver. The purpose of this study is to determine if the community-based summer camp called EmpowerSCI can help patients who have finished in-hospital rehabilitation, by further benefiting their short-term and long-term abilities in daily activities.
This study will last for about 5 months which includes 1 month before the start of camp and 3 months of follow up after camp. You will be asked to complete surveys online through a link that researchers will be providing you at 2 or 3 different timepoints. This study takes place at StonyBrook University in the summer.
Spinal cord injuries (SCI) often lead to a decrease in ones ability to participate in daily occupations. Our study explores the potential benefits that participating in a camp, EmpowerSCI, can have on the ability to participate in occupations, indirectly decreasing caregiver burden.
