Welcome to the Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Evidence (SCIRE) -- Version 4!

SCIRE is a synthesis of the research evidence underlying rehabilitation interventions to improve the health of people living with SCI. 

The products of SCIRE result from the combined efforts of expert scientists, clinicians, consumers and stakeholders to increase the accessibility of quality information in SCI rehabilitation.

It is expected that the pre-appraised, synthesized research from SCIRE will translate into improved health for Canadians by facilitating health care professionals, scientists, policy-makers and consumers with SCI to be informed of the latest evidence. People with SCI and their families may also find the information useful to understanding their health and health care.
