Project : Best Practice Implementation of Electrical Stimulation Therapy for Healing Pressure Ulcers in Community Dwelling Persons with Spinal Cord Injury

Research Area: Clinical and Health Services Excellence


Brief Abstract:

Pressure ulcers are a serious and common secondary health complication among individuals with spinal cord injury (SCI). Despite best practice recommendations, electrical stimulation therapy is not being utilized in standard wound are practices in the community and people with spinal cord injuries are unable to access this recommended treatment. The goal is to implement electrical stimulation therapy and other best practices in the community by engaging and collaborating with key stakeholders.
