Knowledge Translation Studies

Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Evidence (SCIRE):

Did you know that large studies analyzing the health-care system have shown that up to 45% of time, treatments of proven effectiveness are not provided and 20% of patients get care that is potentially harmful? Dr. Eng is the co-leader of the Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation Evidence (SCIRE) Project; a knowledge translation project which includes systematic reviews, outcome measures, case studies and education modules. The project’s intent is to inform and assist clinicians to deliver best practice to improve the outcomes of their patients. Over 70 faculty from 5 countries are involved. The SCIRE Project is a highly accessible source of quality information that facilitates best practice and is used by health care professionals, clients and their families, funding agencies, advocacy groups and policy-making groups. The SCIRE Project is currently serving as a platform for several novel knowledge implementation projects.
