SCI and Bladder Management
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE STUDY?
The purpose of this study is to determine the thoughts that people living with a spinal cord injury (SCI) have regarding their social and emotional priorities for their bladder management. We will use an online website to determine which factors are most important to you and determine how these factors vary in importance among different groups of people living with spinal cord injury. We will use this information to better understand how people with a spinal cord injury decide on bladder management and to identify any barriers related to the different methods of management that should be addressed by healthcare team members. We hope to eventually use this information to create an online support tool which will be able to provide people with a spinal cord injury with individualized recommendations and information.
