Presented by Suzanne Groah, MD, MSPH, Project Director, and Manon Maitland Schladen (Lauderdale), MSE, Co-Director of Training, Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Secondary Conditions in Individuals with Spinal Cord Injury (SCI).

About the Webinar

This RRTC works to help people maintain their health after SCI and focuses specifically on the prevention of obesity, cardiovascular disease, and pressure ulcers. Over the next 5 years, National Rehabilitation Hospital (NRH,) along with Independent Living Research Utilization (ILRU) and other collaborators, will conduct research activities that will produce new knowledge for consumers and their health care providers. The RRTC will then work to help people use the knowledge gained from research to reduce the incidence of cardiovascular disease and pressure ulcers in SCI, improving quality of life, and enhancing well-being.

This 2-part webinar series introduced the research activities of the RRTC and highlight how they will affect the health and well-being of individuals with SCI. Part I introduced research activities focusing on the prevention of obesity and cardiovascular disease. Part II introduced research activities focusing on the maintenance of skin health and the prevention of pressure ulcers, and can be viewed on http://www.ilru.org/html/training/webcasts/archive/2010/07-28-SCI-RRTC.html

Learning Objectives:

  • Increased understanding of the special needs individuals with SCI are facing to protect the health of their heart
  • Increased awareness of heart disease prevention
  • Have an understanding of personally controlled health records
