The New England SCI Toolkit (NESCIT) is a collaborative effort between facilities providing spinal cord injury (SCI) rehabilitation in New England. This collaboration ensures patients throughout New England and beyond are receiving the same coordinated standard of care wherever they receive rehabilitation. Further, this Toolkit will aid in building capacity at facilities that may not treat patients with SCI often enough to have developed expertise.
Our objective was to develop a toolkit for SCI education and care designed as an educational tool for use after acute rehabilitation to help improve functional outcomes while decreasing the frequency of complications associated with paralysis for people with SCI.
Facilities participating with NESCIT will contribute to the communication between clinicians to share treatment ideas, problem solve, and discuss program development ideas. We encourage NESCIT Network and others, to share their processes and resources with other facilities to ensure consistency of care.
