What is it about?
The care for patients with SCI across treatment centers has not been standardized. Our aim is to summarize and critically evaluate existing clinical practice guidelines (CPGs) for the care of patients with SCI at the acute and post-acute phase. This review will be useful in determining any existing gaps in current clinical guidance and support the development of a standardized clinical pathway for SCI in provincial nursing/allied health care to improve patient outcomes.
