The University of Washington Department of Rehabilitation Medicine is conducting a study to increase our knowledge about aging with a physical disability. The purpose of this study is to see if a telephone based health and wellness program can help individuals with long-term physical disability.
Participation in this research would involve talking on the phone with a wellness coach approximately once a month for 6 months or continuing your normal care with no phone calls. All participants will fill out 4 surveys over the course of 1 year that will take approximately 60 minutes each.
Participants will be compensated for their time and effort.
Seeking participants who:
Are ages 45-64 and acquired SCI before age of 40
Have been diagnosed with a medical condition (such as Amputation, Spinal Cord Injury, or Multiple Sclerosis) that impacts daily living and/or quality of life.
