Who we are

The SCI KMN is a network of 7 rehabilitation hospitals that work collaboratively to promote the implementation and sustained utilization of best practices in spinal cord injury care.  Each of the 7 sites has Site Leads(s) and a Knowledge Mobilization Specialist (KMS).  The rehabilitation sites are located across four provinces (Alberta, New Brunswick, Ontario, and Quebec) and are as follows:

Representatives from each site, Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation (ONF), and Rick Hansen Institute compose the Network Leadership Team.  As the change agent, the Network Leadership Team utilizes its expertise and resources (establishing communities of practice, knowledge synthesis and consensus methodologies, and expert committees) and applies the principles of implementation science including evaluation to promote Best Practice Implementation.

All sites are also supported directly by the Network Lead, Network Manager, and implementation science consultant(s).

Ontario Neurotrauma Foundation and Rick Hansen Institute have partnered their resources to fund the SCI KMN BPI across Canada.
