Spinal Cord Essentials comes to PAR-QoL

The PAR-QoL team is excited to announce that Spinal Cord Essentials has come to our website.  Spinal Cord Essentials is a patient education initiative which aims help people through rehabilitation following spinal cord injury (SCI).

The project currently consists of 70 handouts which are one to four pages in length relating to various aspects of SCI rehabilitation. Many of the handouts have been included on secondary health conditions pages across the site.

On the PAR-QoL Secondary Health Conditions page, we have handouts on:

1) What is Spinal Cord Injury
2) My Diagnosis and Outcomes
3) 100,000 km Tune Up

On the bladder dysfunction page, we have handouts on:

1) Condom Catheters
2) Foley Catheters
3) Male Intermittent Catheterization
4) Female Intermittent Catheterizatio
5) Intermittent Catheterization Protocol
6) Urinary Tract Infections
7) Cleaning Your Drainage Bag
8) Bladder Supply Vendors

On the bowel dysfunction page, we have handouts on:

1) My Bowel Care Program
2) Digital Stimulation
3) Stool Softeners and Laxatives
4) Diet and Bowel Management


On the autonomic dysreflexia page, we have handouts on:

1) Autonomic Dysreflexia
2) Orthostatic Hypotension

On the respiratory complications page, we have handouts on:

1) Lung volume augmentation       

We hope that the inclusion of Spinal Cord Essentials on our site will help to highlight this valuable resource for people with SCI and their families living in the community.  To see the entire Spinal Cord Essentials project, which has handouts on Mobility, Community Living, and other important resources, click here.
