COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy

There is a limited understanding of the impact of COVID-19 on vulnerable populations, such as the SCI community. Additionally, People with SCI may be disproportionately affected by COVID-19 due to pandemic mitigation strategies focused around physical distancing, which interrupts access to caregiver support and rehabilitative services. We aim to determine the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the delivery of rehabilitation services towards people with SCI and their mental health.
