Sleep Disturbance in Spinal Cord Injury

Identifying Symptoms and Risk Factors (SCI Sleep Survey)

Thank you for your interest in our SCI Sleep Survey. This research is being done in the Department of Rehabilitation Medicine at the University of Washington.

We would appreciate your participation if:

You have a Spinal Cord Injury that occurred at least 1 year ago
You are between the ages of 21 and 75
Sleep is very important, but more study is needed about spinal cord injury and sleep. This research serves two purposes. First, we want to obtain a better understanding of sleep and sleep dysfunction in people with SCI. Second, we want to create a standardized tool that will help clinicians (doctors and nurses) and researchers better identify sleep disturbance in people with SCI.

This survey will ask you questions about your physical and psychological health. You may be asked questions multiple times or worded in a similar way. This is intentional and meant to help us design a more effective survey in the future. The survey will take you approximately 30 minutes. Once you have submitted the completed survey, you will have the opportunity to enter a drawing for a $25 Amazon gift card by providing your contact information in a separate (not connected to your sleep survey responses) survey.

Your answers to the survey are anonymous. If you have any questions about this study, please contact the researchers at fogelber [at] If you have questions about research and Human Subjects, you may contact the University of Washington Human Subjects Division at 206.543.0098 or email hsdinfo [at]
