Best Practices

The SCI KMN works together to implement Best Practices in the domains of pressure ulcer, pain and bladder management - secondary complications to spinal cord injury—to improve the quality of life for those persons.

Implementation is defined as follows:

" A specified set of purposeful activities at the practice, program, and system level designed to put into place a program or intervention of known dimensions with fidelity. "
(Fixsen and Blase, 2006)

The SCI KMN has undertaken purposeful activities to implement best practices in spinal cord injury rehabilitation over the past few years. The network is currently working on Pressure Ulcers and Pain Management with future work focusing on Bladder Management.
